Time Timer® Time Education and Time Management System

Time Timer


What Is The Time Timer® ?

time+timer logo

The Time Timer® is an innovative new teaching aid aimed at time education for both young children and those with special educational needs.

The abstract concept of time is easy to see and understand with the Time Timer’s visual depiction of elapsed time.

See and “feel” time elapse as the red dial gets smaller and smaller each minute.

No need to be distracted by the hands and the numbers of a traditional clock face. The Time Timer clearly shows you how much time is left in any interval of 60 minutes.


Time Timer® - Customer Comments

"I have seven students (six with Autism and one who has Downs Syndrome.) I like using the Time Timer with my students because it does not disturb the others, some of whom are extremely noise sensitive."

"I love your visual time. It has been especially useful in working with children with Attention Deficit Disorder and traumatic brain injuries."

"The mom of my Autistic student sends her child’s timer to school with him to keep his day structured. I am amazed at how much it helps the other kids in my classroom get their work done on time. It’s been a lifesaver for all the students, not just my special needs kids."

The Time Timer provides the ability to judge how much time is left without having to know how to tell the time.

The Time Timer works in both individual and group situations. Users are able to understand the passage of time enabling them to monitor their own activities and in turn improve their self-esteem. Better time awareness also relieves the stress and anxiety of disorientation.  The user is limited only by their own creativity.

The Time Timers have high colour resolution, large dial numbers and ultra-quiet quartz movement, all of which make the Time Timer perfect for special needs students with ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, Autism Spectrum Disorders, also students with visual impairments.


How Does The Time Timer®  Work?

Simply move the red disc counterclockwise to the desired time interval. The disc diminishes as time elapses until no red is visible on the timer. The disc may be moved clockwise or counterclockwise without harming the mechanism.


Time Timer® - Making Classrooms More Effective

In a teaching situation, no other tool communicates the concept of elapsed time as well as the Time Timer.
Used as an interactive teaching tool, this classroom-tested teaching aid reinforces the sense of elapsed time with graphic depiction of the time remaining.

The Time Timer can be used to:

  •  Show time left to play, get ready or to clean up before the end of lesson
  •  Time written tests & classroom experiments
  •  Measure study & lunch periods
  •  Regulate computer time

Time Timer® - Improving your home and work life

In the workplace and at home, time management is crucial. Being on time, meeting deadlines and maximising accomplishments are all functions of good time management.

The Time Timer products make the passage of time obvious and tangible when you want to set a time limit for an activity or when you want to measure progress against time.
