Safety and Independence

Children need to move and play, but we also need to keep them safe while allowing them to do this. Items on this page are recommended to enable this to happen.

  • eCup Double Wall - Sparkles


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    This cup is for grown-ups really (double-walled to keep your coffee hot etc) but we think kids will love it. Our Speechies love it because it has no valve, unlike most sipper cups on the market today. The valves encourage poor tongue placement which can affect speech production. So this cup still gives children the protection of the rim, but they're not using the constant sucking movement when drinking. It's a more natural action. 
    Hand wash only for this one.

  • Time Timer Plus

    $63.00
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    The Time Timers enable children to see how much time is left without having to know how to tell the time. The Timers have clear, distinctive colours, large dial numbers, and an ultra-quiet quartz movement. These features make the Time Timers perfect for students with difficulties maintaining concentration on tasks, and persisting with tasks. This can be applicable for children with sensory processing issues, ADD, ADHD, autism, etc. They can be used at home, within therapy sessions, and at school, and for both individuals and groups of children. With the Time Timer, the clear visual feedback helps children better understand the passage of time and can monitor their own activities.  This improves their confidence and gives them organised time periods which can reduce anxiety. Children know how much longer they need to persist with a task!

    Time Timers can also be used in the following situations:
    • Timing activity sessions and specific exercises
    • Self-monitoring
    • Overseeing speech, hearing and vision therapies
    • Memory prompting for medications, appointments, etc.
    You can use the visual cue only, or you can add sound with the clear "beep-beep" sound to signal the end of a time segment. Operates on one "AA" battery (not included). The time disc may be moved manually in either direction and can be set at any point on the face.

    These Time Timers are a valuable resource for every classroom to assist with anxiety levels, help with transitioning and for students to develop awareness about the passage of time. 

    The Time Timer Plus has a protective, anti-static carry case with a handle for extra portability.
