Is it a battle to get your child to do something quickly?
This visual countdown App was designed for my 2 year old son to help him get his reward chart star for getting dressed quickly.
Getting him dressed used to take forever with many stalling strategies being deployed. Now he runs upstairs asking for the "Countdown".
Watch as the timer runs from green to amber to red, helping the child understand that time is running out.
A fun picture is slowly revealed as the time runs down and when the time is up the child is rewarded with an exciting sound and the picture spins.
Background image changes to match the time of day, so that your child is given subtle hints as to what time of day the task they are being asked relates to.
Choose your own image to reveal from your iPhones photo library to really surprise your child.
Endless possible uses:
* Getting dressed
* Getting out the door (shoes and coats on)
* Brushing teeth
* Sharing toys
Turns daily struggles into fun time!
Fixed a bug where switching to another App and back again would cause the visual timer to stop revealing the picture
Ratings and Reviews
Great countdown for children with autism
I'm a special needs teacher and I use this app in the classroom for a few students who have autism. It is a great visual way to represent time and the students are more willing to finish a task when this clock is in front of them. It is a powerful tool in the classroom because they struggle to read and understand time on normal analogue or digital clocks. Thanks!
Good basic idea...
Good basic idea, although I know plenty of kids who would deliberately let the timer run down in order to see the current stars and sound effects display.
I would suggest:
1. A 'success' button (or similar) that the child can press when they successfully beat the clock, which instantly shows the full picture along with celebration stars and happy sound effects.
2. If the timer runs out the picture becomes an unhappy 'smiley' face with no stars or other happy sound effects.
Great app for kids Physio exercises
We use this timer to make daily Physio exercises fun for my daughter who has Cystic Fibrosis. We had the free version forever which is great - though just upgraded to the paid version and the extra photos are so worth it! She loves seeing what image it might be each time.
