Sensory Processing Disorder goes beyond trouble with vision and hearing


Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) goes beyond trouble with vision and hearing, often affecting the tactile, proprioception, or vestibular system. Difficulty interpreting stimuli can lead to developmental delays, behavioral changes, difficulty with activities of daily living, (ADLs) and social problems. Over-crowded schools can lead to problems for children with hypersensitivity to touch or sound. Without proper supervision, over stimulation from the surrounding environment could make it impossible for children with SPD to engage and learn. But Interactive Metronome training can help!


Processing and responding to stimuli is a major function of the human brain; in fact, one could argue that it is basically the only function of the brain. Interactive Metronome training goes directly to the source, timing in the brain. SPD is related to the body and brain’s ability to synchronize and appropriately respond to stimuli. If the brain and body cannot communicate effectively, efficiently and rhythmically, the signals may get crossed. Sometimes they don’t make it at all.


Interactive Metronome® 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.” Interactive Metronome training is able to go to the source of the problem, which is inefficient Neurotiming.


Timing is a domain-general mechanism and it is the basis for attention, working memory and processing speed, all of which are critical for social interaction, attention, handwriting, behavior and language development. Synchronizing the body’s functional brain networks will help neurons fire more efficiently, which will mean faster communication, improved processing and more fluid movement. Essentially, IM training helps to rewire the brain’s connections to work at peak performance.


Now, brain and body can work together. Research shows that combining whole body movements with cognitive tasks leads to overall better outcomes. Interactive Metronome is the only training program that improves timing in the brain in an organized, systematic, flexible and engaging format.
