Have you heard of the Buddy's timer ?
It can be used with very young children and is perfectly suited for children on the autistic spectrum. It is the ideal tool to help learn the concept of time. The time timer "materializes" the time left for an activity at home, in school or during a therapy session.
It helps reduce frustrations from waiting.

Buddy’s timer is very simple to use.

Settings from 1 to 60 minutes – secure screen mode – piano key chime for audio support - fully functional, no in-app purchases.

Needs more options

Timer part works fine but it would be nice if there were more options like different sounds when the time is up, etc. also the lock function is only semi useful since it is easy to bump or for little hands to find. Overall it works but needs a few more upgrades to be more functional.

Not that great

I needed a visual timer for my three year old son. This is a good idea but is lacking some features. First, it dings every minute that passes. If I set it for an hour that's sixty annoying dings. There should be an option to change the settings and make it more specific to how you need it. Second the lock feature doesn't do much. You can still leave the app and search the rest of the phone. Also he can easily unlock it himself. I like the idea but there should be more options for adjusting the settings to better fit your needs.

Not worth 3.99

I bought this to use in session with one of my kiddos. The idea of the colored visual is great, but there is no sound if you have to have your phone on silent (even when app volume is up). Also there are no settings or options so I'm not sure why the app is priced so high. Maybe .99 is a better price if not for free
