an idea I posted about on September 7, 2007. They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.
The idea was to use the "Mark-My-Time" bookmark as a visual schedule. In 2007 I had a student who was in need of working on his independence and time management skills as he prepared to leave for the day and using the "Mark-My-Time" bookmark as a visual schedule was just what we needed. Since then I have used the bookmark/timer adapted with some self-adhesive velcro for not only visual schedules but also for a token holder/star chart for students collecting tokens/star during differential reinforcement of zero rates of behavior or differential reinforcementb of incompatible behaviors.
Mayer-Johnson and Turning Point Technology are both carrying the adapted Mark-my-Time bookmarks created by Augmentative Resources. Of course the Mark-My-Time Book mark retails at $8.44 on Amazon.com (and you can find it for as low as $6.70) and the adapted version will cost you up to $30.00. Then again, the original bookmark from Amazon and some self-adhesive velcro strips or a glue gun and some velcro receptive fabric should create the $18.00 version of the adapted bookmark/timer for less than $10.00. Which saves you enough to by two Mark-My-Time bookmarks at the unadapted price!
