Transition Trouble Sweepstakes: Win a Time Timer!
Enter to win one of five Time Timer Original 3” — an essential tool for managing time and easing transitions — by answering these questions below: What are your (or your child’s) bumpiest transitions? What is your secret to smoothing them out?
Transitions Trip Up ADHD Brains
ADHD brains do not excel at transitions — especially those that involve shutting down a preferred task and opening up a non-preferred task. Any parent who’s tried to move a child from video games to homework knows this is true. Any adult with ADHD who has resisted a change in routine and schedule (hello, pandemic) also knows this is true. And draining.
How Time Timer Helps
The Time Timer Original 3” is the perfect visual timer for keeping students and professionals on track while working and studying from home. As time elapses, the red disk disappears, therefore increasing focus and making the abstract concept of time concrete. Clinically proven to increase self-regulation in children, this 60-minute Time Timer model includes a Dry Erase Activity Card that can be slotted into the top of the timer for visual schedules and time-to-task management. Ease transitions between activities and make expectations clear while working and learning from home.
