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.

How the Time Timer Works
Easy to Set: To set a Time Timer, move the colored disk to the desired amount of time.
No Loud Ticking: The time automatically begins to count down with no loud ticking.
Time Visually Disappears: As time elapses, the colored disk disappears. The Time Timer operates in a clockwise direction.
Make Every Moment Count: Time is up when the disk is gone!
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."
