Special Needs Applications - Key Features and Benefits
Cognitive, Communicative, Physical and Sensory :
- For children who have attention deficit disorder, the changing of the lights and the sound effects can help a child stay on or get back on target.
- Children with autism have difficulty with transitions. This light provides auditory and visual warnings to prepare the child for the upcoming change.
- For children who have a difficult time transitioning to another task, this light provides auditory and visual warnings to prepare the child for the upcoming change.
- Provides visual and auditory cues, allowing children with hearing impairments and children with visual impairments to benefit from this time management tool.
- For children with learning disabilities, who may take longer to read or test, this unit can be set for the full “class period” and the child can get a visual and auditory cue to start wrapping up – if it is something he cannot have unlimited time to complete. Additionally, children may be a bit more comfortable when testing if they know they will get a warning when time is running low, rather than have an abrupt ending, which doesn’t give them time to prepare to finish.
- Oftentimes children with disabilities need medication throughout the day. The Time Tracker can assist teachers in remembering to administer those medications.
- Children with disabilities function best when they have a set routine and the Time Tracker can facilitate daily patterns.
- A reactive strategy for disciplining a child with a disability can be “time out”. The Time - Tracker can work as a child’s indication when time out begins and ends.
- Children who have trouble with appropriate social interactions can use this to assist with turn taking and patience. The child with a “desired toy” can have it for the set amount of time. The lights and sounds help prepare him for the end of his play time with that toy. When the buzzer goes off and red light turns on, he must turn it over to the other child – who has been watching the Time Tracker and patiently waiting his turn. The waiting child also has visual and auditory clues, which helps him remain patient.
