Not this year. This year it is time to get organized. Just like Interactive Metronome, organization takes only minutes a day and will make a world of difference in your life. It will relieve stress, improve focus and increase productivity. That all sound pretty good? We thought so. Read on to find out how to start getting organized today.
It’s a weekday afternoon at the Camarillo Boys & Girls Club and about a dozen children ages 5 to 8 enter the computer room. Each puts on headphones, straps a round plastic button to one hand and starts clapping.
Most of these children are struggling in school, and some have learning disabilities such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder.
They are participating in a three- to four-week pilot program called Hardy Brain Camp, a unique form of therapy designed to help the young pupils focus and succeed in school.
Medicare provides sporadic home health care for Larry Tilson of Tarpon Springs, who has Lou Gehrig’s disease. To get the therapy he says helps with his chronic illness, he must first suffer a medical crisis, such as falling or breaking a bone.
We want to say thank you to everyone that attended this year's IM Professional Conference. We had a great turn out and received RAVE reviews. This truly couldn't have been done without your support, so like we said in the opening remarks, give yourself a pat on the back and a round of applause!
This 2008 study published in Contemporary Issues In Communication Science and Disorders demonstrated the effect of IM training on expressive and receptive language skills in an adolescent female with a language learning disorder (LLD). According to the study, the subject (Renee) was in 7th grade and was experiencing difficulty with both oral and written language. Renee was extremely frustrated and required several special accommodations at school like increased time for test-taking, altered or shortened assignments, modified grading scale, open book exams, and shortened verbal instruction. She spent part of the time in the regular classroom and received special education services in the areas of reading, writing, and math. The IEP showed specific emphasis on word retrieval, syntax (with pronouns specifically), reading, writing, and math.
