Interactive Metronome®

 

Interactive Metronome® (IM) is a therapeutic assessment and training program that improves attention, concentration, motor planning and sequencing.  Improvements in those areas result in stronger motor control and coordination, enhanced balance and gait, and improved language and cognition.

 

IM provides a structured, goal-oriented program that challenges the client to synchronize a range of whole body exercises to a precise computer-generated beat.  The client attempts to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor movements.  IM’s game-like features engage the client with auditory and visual guidance and provides real-time feedback while encouraging him/her to improve scores.

Integrated Listening Systems® (iLs)

 

In the same way that exercise trains our bodies to become stronger and healthier, iLs' multi-sensory approach trains our brains to process sensory, cognitive and emotional information more effectively.  iLs programs begin with music and movement, and then gradually integrate language and cognitive activities.  The difficulty level can be individualized for any age or skill level.

 

iLs has a global effect on the brain and is therefore used to achieve a wide variety of therapeutic goals:

 

  • Learning challenges - reading, writing, attention

  • Developmental delays, including Autism Spectrum Disorders and Down Syndrome

  • Rehab for brain injury and stroke

  • Stress and sleep-related isues
