Time Timer Original

The Original Visual Timer, 3 Different Sizes

It started with one little question: “How much longer?”

Jan Rogers set out to answer this question for her inquisitive child over 25 years ago. This led to the invention of the Time Timer Original 8" - the first visual timer. Proven through years of experience, in addition to clinical research, the Time Timer helps everyone, of all ages and abilities, "see" time, therefore increasing focus and self-regulation. With the patented red disk, Time Timer makes elapsing time concrete by reaffirming the analog clock in its clockwise movement. The visual design of Time Timer family of products helps ease transitions and encourages independence and productivity for all abilities, including those with Autism, ADHD, or other special needs.

As it’s evolved over the years, the original 8” visual timer is now available in 12” and 3” models. With the different size options, you can customize time management for your classroom, workplace, or home.
