Does Your Child Have Difficulty With Transitions Or Having To Wait?
Our Time Timers Are So Popular Because They Work Like A Dream…
Time Timer – We have used the Time Timer in our household for years now with great success. Visually showing the passage of time means children can be easily transitioned and therefore reducing the anxiety.
We use the Time Timer every day from getting dressed ready for school, computer time, Xbox time and even dinner time.
Do you ever get the question ” How much longer till we eat ” we all get that one, no worries just turn the Time Timer around and they can see for themselves even the little ones.
Young children have no concept of time 10mins might as well be all day to them, with the Time Timer we are able to show exactly what 10mins looks like. It’s just that simple!
The Time Timer is the perfect visual answer. It helps children feel more in control by helping them organise their environment to know when change is coming up. By using this visual aid you can reduce the confusion and unpredictability some children feel when their environment and instructions change.
Your child can gain more flexibility in their thinking by knowing when is running out and therefore reduce behavioural problems when the change happens. Kids see that time is running out as the ‘red’ disappears.
