Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center of Lancaster County works with children with cognitive disabilities, teaching them skills and giving them physical therapy that will assist them in living independently. The Center expressed an interest in obtaining computer software to help teach time telling skills to the children. I therefore decided to develop this application for my Senior Honors Project. There are a number of recommendations when it comes to teaching time telling, and I took these into consideration when designing my software. I used Macromedia Flash MX 2004 / ActionScript as my programming tool and developed a seven lesson program to aid Schreiber in teaching the students to tell time.
