In the remaining weeks of summer there is just enough time to undertake undertake an Interactive Metronome® (IM)
program for your child.
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
We have had a number of families use the Interactive Metronome program to improve their child’s attention and focus, motor coordination (esp. for sports, dance, etc.) and frustration tolerance.
The program can be done as a stand-alone intervention or as a supplement to therapy services (at Emerge or elsewhere).
While Emerge offers this program year-round, the summer is often the
best time to do it, due to the program’s intensity. It is typically a
15 session program completed over the course of 5 weeks. While it can
sometimes be adapted for use with younger children, it is most commonly
used with children aged 7 and above. If you are interested in
exploring Interactive Metronome as an option for your child, please give us a call @ 928-0204.
