What and for whom

What is a Color Clock?
A Color Clock is a clock on which you can no longer see what time it is and you cannot learn to tell time on it either. So what is it? A useful tool to teach children to work independently. Children gain insight into time.

Model B in use Each time you want your child to work independently, make an appointment with the child. For example: you are allowed to use the computer for another 15 minutes. Place that one hand on the clock at the beginning of the orange area. The hand continues to run as on a normal clock. As time passes, the child can keep an eye on the color himself. He sees the pointer moving forward; once the next color is reached the child knows his time is over.

Who is the Color Clock intended for?

A Color Clock is a tool that is increasingly used in both primary and special education and (youth) care. But also for home use: especially when children can use the same tool both at home and at school.

Model A (wall model) is mainly used in groups.
Model B (table model) can be used individually. Model H (watch model) is suitable for use in individual 'mobile situations'. They all aim to teach children to work independently.

The clock was initially developed for children with Autism (PDD-NOS) and ADHD, but Color Clocks are now used for all children. The Color Clock already has many users:
• teachers in primary & special education (preschool and junior classes)
• remedial teachers
• play therapists
• parents in home situations
• pedagogical staff from various target groups.
