This timer, used in large or small increments, can really help motivate kids to sustain their attention for periods of time and learn to manage their time. Parents may need to use some trial and error with the customizable features to make sure the visual and auditory features are helpful and not distracting. But for those struggling to complete activities because of ADHD or other attention issues, Focus Keeper Pro is certainly worth a try if it can help boost a child's confidence, independence, and productivity throughout their day.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
