Course Description
The purpose of this course is to advance your clinical knowledge & implementation of the Interactive Metronome (IM) within the healthcare setting. This course will focus in more depth on feedback for timing & rhythm. When is it appropriate to introduce feedback for timing? What manner of feedback is best suited to your patient? How do you determine whether auditory, visual, or combined auditory-­-visual feedback will be most effective? In addition to high umber of repetitions over the course of IM training, feedback for timing is crucial for improving eural timing, synchronization and functional outcomes. Individualizing your approach for patient-­-specific eeds will be discussed.
