Visual countdowns may help as well

Much like a visual timer, a visual countdown allows your child to see how much time is remaining for an activity. However, the difference is that there is no specific time set in the visual countdown. Rather, the countdown tool can be numbered or colored with shapes or styles that are meaningful to your child. For instance, as soon as you remove a top item, such as a box marked number 4, he or she will be able to see that 3 items remain. In regards to the timing in between the items, this depends on when the transition will occur and once the last item is removed, your child will understand that it is time to transition.
