Time

These are some resources on the topic of time and clocks. Of course many of the history items could be included but these ones here are the most obvious. They are not new resources – I have just made a new special section so they can be found easily. I never met a child with delayed or impaired language who did not have a problem with time, telling the time, talking about the calendar, measuring time, sequencing events in order, and remembering what will happen when.

Try and give frequent examples of how we know when things will happen, and in what order. Provide cards with tasks for the day to be done in order. Make simple timetables showing the plan for each day. Remember the words we all use such as now, soon, later, after this, when you’ve had dinner, at home-time, tomorrow, next week, in a few days, if there’s time, once upon a time are VERY confusing just because they are fluid and non-specific. The same words often seem to mean something different each time they occur!
