Watch as the timer goes from green, to yellow, to red as time runs out. We show both a digital and linear timer to support visual learners.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I turn off the ticking sounds?

Yes! You can change any sounds (including the ticking sound, the half-way mark, and the "Time's up!" sound) from the Goally Parent (aka Care Team) app.

What is the "Sneaky Pause?"

If you turn on "Sneaky Pause," Goally's ticking sound will keep running even if you pause the timer! This keeps kids focused on the task at hand.

Does the visual timer app come with other apps, like visual schedules?

You know it! Goally's timer app also comes with a visual scheduler, so you can teach your kids how the timer app works and then introduce routines that use the same way of representing time.

Can I involve my teacher or therapist?

Yes! You can add unlimited care team members to your kiddo's account. They can help create visual schedules, routines, and rewards from their own account on Goally's Care Team App.

What if my kid doesn't like it?

No problem - there are no contracts or risk with Goally. If you or your kiddo doesn't like it, just let us know and we will cancel your subscription.

However, it's pretty rare that kid doesn't love their Goally when it's implemented the right way! We recommend starting Goally with a fun routine and easy-to-achieve reward. Som ideas from our parents: feed the dog, get ready for the park, make hot chocolate, etc.

Let kids create a positive relationship with Goally!


Parents & Pros Goally's purple heart. Goally

"Almost immediately, my kid started following the routines. It was like magic. I didn't need to tell him what to do.”

—Michelle P

“For the third night in a row, our son has gone to bed WITHOUT me having to lay down with him.”

—Caitlyn R

“We had been trying toilet training for 6 months. Then we got a Goally and made more progress in 2 days than the entire prior 6 months."

—Jamie S

We got our Goally on Monday and I was able to set everything up pretty quickly. And guess what, [my son] is obsessed with it!!! It has already helped the morning routine tremendously. He’s getting up without me when the Goally goes off and he’s very eager to get everything done in the allotted time. This whole week we have been leaving for school at the perfect time.

It’s going well! [My son] loves our hot chocolate routine. Often he will bring goally over to indicate to make it or other times he will ask for hot chocolate and I say go grab goallly. It sure has helped making kitchen time more structured and less chaotic! I hope to add a few more fun routines, before we get into more serious goals, but haven’t gotten there yet!
