My son aged 9 has Aspergers and finds timing difficult. We tried egg-timers but he forgets to look at them or doesn't notice when they've run out. The local Autism group suggested the Time Tracker. All I can say is Wow!! This has exceeded all my expectations. It's really helped him with so many things. EG If he's playing his DS before school, he knows he has to save the game once its gone yellow, but can keep playing till the light changes to red, then has to get his shoes on before the buzzer goes off. Similarly for something he doesn't want to do, e.g. homework, he can see once it gets to yellow he hasn't got too much longer to go. It provides a clear visual indication that he can relate to, as it's like traffic lights! This is something that words alone, clock faces, digital displays or sand timers don't seem able to provide for him. It's big enough and bright enough to catch his attention and there is always the option of a sound to accompany the change from green/yellow or yellow/red. We now use it for everything from making sure he brushes his teeth long enough to how much time he's allowed on the computer, to getting dressed for school. In fact all the family use it...we may need to buy more!
The kids love the different range of sounds and although programming it is not particularly intuitive once you know how to do it it is actually quick and easy. If I could suggest one thing to the company it would be to make a mini version that you can sit on top of a PC or on their desk (about 10cm tall would be great) not to replace this one but just to allow it to fit onto small spaces. Especially if you could program a small one with a specific time then just hit one button to start it.

THIS IS AN INVALUABLE TOOL FOR ANY PARENT, BUT PARTICULARLY USEFUL IF YOUR CHILD HAS SPECIAL NEEDS -ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO HAVE DIFFICULTY MOVING ON FROM ONE THING TO THE NEXT.
YOU CAN SET HOW LONG YOU WANT TO TIME AND WITHIN THAT HOW LONG A "WARNING" YOU WANT FOR EACH STAGED COUNT DOWN, AND YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO USE THE NOISEY SIGNAL IF YOUR CHILD CANNOT TOLERATE IT, LIKE MINE.
THE ONLY DOWNSIDE, IF THERE IS ANY, IS THE LIGHTS BEING TOO BRIGHT FOR MY ASD CHILD-BUT THIS CAN EASILY BE FIXED WITH A BIT OF TRANSLUCENT MATERIAL OR SIMPLY TURNING THE LIGHT AWAY FROM THE CHILD SO THEY ONLY SEE THE "GLOW"/"REFLECTION". THIS IS A SUPER INVESTMENT!

I found this item to be very good value for money. My child has severe autism, and this has been especially good for him. We use it for a number of things in his everyday life as he has to know how long every thing he does is going to take. Also it is very durable and can put up with his throwing tantrums. I would recommend this to anyone with any child.

Pretty simple but it works. Could be cheaper as the functions are pretty basic,
but it's definitely worth having.

We bought this for our 9 year old who has autism and finds transition between tasks as well as judging time difficult. Time Tracker is absolutely fantastic. It has really helped and in a way which is fun.

I purchased this on behalf of a 'pre-school' who required it as an 'aid' for a child with 'learning difficulties'. to the best of my knowledge they are satisfied with it. Difficult to rate as a toy because in my mind, it is a visual aid and will only be operated by the adult who is present.
