Time Timer® Original 8 Inch


The Original Time Timer is the heart of our Happy Dots Occupational Therapy for Children Clinics.

The Time Timer product line helps to improve lives through the visual measurement and management of time, specifically as it relates to individuals diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Autism, dyslexia, executive function deficits and other help to increase focus and ease the anxiety often associated with transitioning between activities. Our product line has adapted to the changing needs of our consumers, as they become older, more mainstream, and move through their life journey at home, at school, and in the workplace.

There’s a world of difference between looking at a clock and being able to say that it’s 3 o’clock and understanding “how long” 5 minutes is. For those who learn differently, this type of abstract thinking is even more difficult and often creates a high level of anxiety.

For anyone who wants to measure and manage time more effectively, Time Timer® is an innovative visual timer designed to “show” the passage of time through the use of a patented red disk that disappears as time elapses. Unlike traditional timers that fail to make the abstract concept of time concrete, the award-winning Time Timer’s visual depiction of “time remaining” provides stress-free time management at work, school, and home to make every moment count.

Time Timer believes in creating products that truly help people of all ages and abilities to conquer time – in the classroom, in the home, and in the office. While time can be a challenge for differing abilities, we aim to provide intuitive and innovative solutions that make a real difference.
