Interactive Metronome is an exciting technology based program that helps improve attention, focus, timing, sequencing and coordination. Typically it is completed in 15 sessions over a 3-5 week period. Emerge is offering a cost-saving special for anyone who starts the program in July or August.
People who may benefit from use of the IM include children and adults with attention deficit disorders, motor planning problems, poor coordination, gross and fine-motor concerns, aspergers and high functioning autism, and some learning and language disorders. IM can also be used as a mechanism to enhance academic, music and sports performance.
The IM combines principles of the music metronome with the power of a computer to precisely measure and improve human performance. It is the only research-based technology program that uses interactive exercises and a patented auditory guidance system to measure and improve one’s rhythm and timing. By improving this fundamental ability, the individual learns to plan, sequence and process information more effectively.
The IM works by using special head phones and hand and foot sensors to measure how closely a participant responds to the computer generated beat. Participants are challenged to synchronize a hand and foot movements with a tone heard through headphones. Audio and visual feedback signal participants about their performance.
