TOP TIPS FOR USING TIME TIMERS
For anyone who wants to measure and manage time more effectively, the Time Timer is an innovative visual timer designed to “show” the passage of time through the use of a red disk that disappears as time elapses. Unlike traditional timers that fail to make the abstract concept of time concrete, the Time Timer’s visual depiction of “time remaining” provides stress-free management at school and home.
Timers tell the student HOW LONG and WHEN they are going to have to do an activity. Timers allow you to pre-warn the student about activities finishing or starting. They help answer many of the questions these students have: What is happening? What order? What time? What is next? How long?
MINIMISING STRESS AROUND TIMERS
Although timers can provide a timeframe for the student to work within, helping them keep focused and on track, for some students, timers can be a source of stress. Worries can include; finishing too soon, not finishing within the given time and the sound of the timer going off. In order to minimise this stressor, talking about time as much as possible can be very helpful.
