INTERACTIVE METRONOME

Interactive Metronome (IM) is a cutting-edge assessment and treatment tool that is redefining traditional expectations for pediatric therapy outcomes. Many practitioners are using IM to improve cognitive, communicative, behavioral, and motor deficiencies in patients who suffer from a host of debilitating conditions. IM is effective at assisting in the treatment of the following conditions: Auditory and Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Tourette’s syndrome, and more. (possibly take out due to below info)

The Interactive Metronome® (IM) combines the concept of a musical metronome with a patented technology program that accurately measures, assesses and improves a person’s rhythm and timing. It is the only program that uses a patented auditory guidance system plus interactive exercises to improve the foundational skills essential for learning and development.


HOW IT WORKS
The IM program ‘trains the brain’ to plan, sequence and process information more effectively through repetition of interactive exercises. Thirteen different exercises are performed while auditory guide tones direct the individual to match the metronome beat. The difference between the individual’s response and the computer generated beat is measured in milliseconds (ms.) and a score is provided. A low ms. score indicates improved timing and overall performance. The program consists of either (12 or 15) one-hour sessions.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
The IM program has been shown to produce significant results in children and adults with a wide range of physical and cognitive difficulties including ADHD. The March/April 2001 issue of the American Journal of Occupational Therapy identified five core areas of statistically significant improvements gained through the IM training program:
 Attention and Focus
 Motor Control and Coordination
 Language Processing
 Reading and Math Fluency
 Ability to Regulate Aggression / Impulsivity
Ongoing studies continue to validate correlations between Interactive Metronome and academic achievement in mathematics, language, reading and attention to task. The IM program has also proven to be a powerful tool for improving both the physical and mental aspects of athletic performance.
