The Interactive Metronome® is a computer-based program designed to improve timing, attention, coordination and regulation in children and adults with a wide range of cognitive and physical difficulties. It works by having the client synchronize a range of whole body exercises to a precise computer-generated beat and provides visual and auditory feedback for improved timing, rhythm and synchronization in the brain. Interactive Metronome has game-like features which are motivating to children and adults. The Interactive Metronome Program consists of 2-3 one hour sessions per week, for approximately 12-15 visits.
Interactive Metronome can help children diagnosed with:
Nonverbal Learning Disorder
Auditory/Language Processing Disorders
Developmental Coordination Disorder/Dyspraxia
Down Syndrome & other chromosomal disorders
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Sensory Processing Disorder
Traumatic Brain Injury
Areas of Impact:
Executive functions (attentional control, initiation, behavioral self-regulation, self-monitoring, self-correction, problem solving)
Attention (focused, shifting, selective, divided)
Planning, organizing & sequencing
Expressive language (oral and written)
Reading comprehension & fluency
Articulation & speech intelligibility
Motor speech (apraxia)
Motor planning & sequencing
As with any intervention, the varying degrees of severity affect the immediacy of the outcome. As long as the client is able to perform or tolerate assisted repetitive limb movements, positive results from Interactive Metronome treatment should be seen over time.
