Time Timer

I was really excited for my son Kylan when we received the Time Timer in the mail because he has Asperger's Syndrome and has a lot of issues with time and understand the importance of time (example) 5 minutes vs. 35 minutes.  When he's working on a math page it might take him an hour because he sits and day dreams or imagines other things and doesn't realize that time is slipping away BUT with the Time Timer her can glance at it and have a visual reminder that he only has 5 minutes left to complete his page and that has helped keep him on track.  There is no ticking to irritate him and has a alarm that you can turn on or off depending on what you are using the timer for.
They offer several different sizes like:
~12" timer which would be perfect for a classroom setting is $40.00

~8" timer is also available and the cost is $35.00,

~3" personal timer is the timer we received is the perfect size to sit on my desk or on Kylan's desk and we are able to take it with us to activities by just popping it in my purse or a backpack and is $30.00

~ wrist time timer that looks similar to a watch the youth size is $40 and adult size is $40

~CD for your computer it has the ability to change from minutes to seconds, offers a lock-down feature, and the on-screen size can be altered. Time Timer CD can be set for longer than one hour. Each CD comes with a five seat license (can be installed on five different computers) and is $24

~Phone app which is $1.99

~Time timer puzzle is $15.00

That's really neat. I'm going to go and check out the app.

I can see where this would come in handy with all kids. Maybe even me... LOL!
