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.

What Our Clients Say
"I have used several different sized Time Timer products over the past 10 years in my teaching, coaching and personal life. When I am teaching adults, having the large model at the front of the room during small group exercises allows me and my students to gauge time with just a quick glance. When coaching via Face Time, I put the timer above my computer screen where my client doesn't see it, but I do, and can let each client know when we are in the last 15 minutes. In my massage practice, I take the smaller timer to chair massage events such as fund raisers. People signing up for the next session can see how long they have to wait without interrupting me with questions.

I was introduced to this product by a friend of mine who is a Special Ed teacher. At 50, I was diagnosed with ADHD and using this timer to help myself shift to the next task has been invaluable. I frequently refer my coaching clients and/or parents to this tool."
