Have you heard of the Octopus Watch? It seems like an excellent externalization tool to help kids with executive dysfunction manage their daily routine and improve their time monitoring skills.
The website describes it as:
Octopus Watch Motion Edition is the first icon-based watch that empowers kids by teaching good habits and the concept of time, while also encouraging them to stay active with its new fitness tracker.
• It links time to events thru 2000+ icons, making it the first clock that young kids can actually read and understand.
• It’s a scheduler for children that fosters responsibility, independence and self-esteem.
• It’s an assistant that helps parents prioritize expectations and stay consistent with daily routines.
• It’s a fitness tracker that tracks physical activity and more.
