Course Description
There are many benefits to providing therapy in a group setting, including peer support and opportunities for natural communication. A core skill that underlies speech/language and cognitive/linguistic abilities is that of mental timing or what is referred to in the literature as temporal processing. The Interactive Metronome (IM) is a treatment program that specifically addresses the timing skills that form the basis for communication and language. IM can easily be incorporated into a group therapy format to facilitate both group and individual goal achievement. This course will focus on rehabilitation of adults and will outline how to plan, organize, and perform activities for a group with emphasis on improving timing, cognitive skills, and/or communication skills.
Contact hours are offered pending successful completion of a written exam at the end of the course. PARTICIPANTS MUST ATTEND BOTH 1-HOUR PRESENTATIONS TO RECEIVE CREDIT FOR THIS COURSE (2 HOURS).
