This is the Wallaby Kitchen Timer. I have a 5-year-old daughter with autism and ADHD. Staying on task for her and switching from doing one thing to another can be hard for her to do. It makes things go a lot smoother if we count down and give her time limits on things. You can't just tell her to stop what she is doing and switch to something else because at times, especially depending on her mood at the time, can cause meltdowns or just overall a very bad day. I often, even before bedtime, let her know verbally 30 minutes to bedtime, 10 minutes to bedtime, 5 minutes to bedtime, etc. I love that this timer has the 1 minute, 1 second, 10 minutes, and 10 seconds buttons for fast and easy setting of the time. You can have it either count up or count down. With my daughter, counting down has always worked best. Often time with autism counting up can go on forever but with counting down when you get to zero that is it so it is easier for them to process that when you get to zero that is the end of it. With this timer, you can place it on a metal surface with the magnet, hang it, or stand it up with the folding stand that is attached to it. We used this timer yesterday to get her to clean her room by setting it for 10 minutes of cleaning time, then 10 minutes of tablet or playing time. It helped with allowing her to know how much time she had to clean before her next break. Please click the link below to view the product.
