Interactive Metronome® (IM) is a patented and unique training tool that challenges thinking and movement simultaneously, providing real-time millisecond feedback to help synchronize the body’s “internal clock.” Timing is the basis for attention, working memory and processing speed, all of which are critical for social interaction, attention, handwriting, behavior and language development – the typical deficits of those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Due to the unique set of challenges that ASD presents, IM can be an effective tool.
Let Interactive Metronome Be the Missing Piece!
With IM training, there is no need for medication that only addresses the symptoms, and not the underlying problem. Research shows that combining whole body movements with cognitive tasks leads to overall better outcomes.
IM training is engaging and motivating, which helps keep children happy during sessions. Marcus’ parents are thrilled with his improvement after IM training. He is finally able to shower himself, dress, feed himself, walk smoothly and hold proper posture. And then there is Molly, who says, “Everything is much easier for me now. It’s much easier to do my homework than it was before.”
All of that and you don’t even have to leave your house! IM training doesn’t have to mean more time in the clinic. No more worrying about fitting training into your schedule. With IM-Home, your child is able to complete their training under the supervision of your therapist, but in the comfort of your own living room, bedroom, office, etc. Ask your therapist about IM-Home today!
