Because we know how important videos have become in today's world we have started compiling footage of how the Interactive Metronome (IM) & IM-Home can help with a variety of conditions, including dyslexia. IM introduces rhythmic exercises to improve motor sequencing and planning, coordination, visual motion detection, attention, and many more key factors that affect dyslexia patients. The treatment is fun and is not limited to a therapist office; with the new IM-Home device you could maximize the results by incorporating them in your daily tasks. Watch the video see for yourself!
The eyes have it: Some find life-altering results in vision therapy
On Wednesday, 10-year-old Matt Morel of Caledonia came home from school with a social studies assignment and 10 or so questions to answer about Christopher Columbus. The everyday task might seem ho-hum in most households, but that the fifth-grader could tackle it on his own is cause for joy as far as his parents, Melanie and Keith, are concerned. A year ago, he couldn't have.
"Before Matt had vision therapy, there was no way he could read that and do it," declared his dedicated mom, who used to spend hour after frustrating hour trying to help her son slog through homework. "Even if he had an open book for an exercise in class, it was useless."
Many parents who hear the diagnosis ADD or ADHD are sent into a tailspin of information overload and “friendly” advice from a variety of sources. As a pediatric Occupational Therapist, I am often faced with the task of helping parents and caregivers interpret what the information they have been given means for their child. Here are a few common questions I get during evaluations: “Will medication really help my child?”; “Why aren’t the medications helping my child sleep at night?”; “When can we expect to wean our child off medication now that he’s started therapy?” and, “Will a special diet be a substitute for medication?”
We’re excited to launch the NEW IM-Home blog. This blog will be aimed at helping families and patients learn how integrating IM-Home into their overall therapy plan can achieve optimal brain and body outcomes. But don’t worry; we won’t only be tooting our own horn. In this blog we will discuss related neuroscience research, helpful home therapy tips, relevant news stories and other interesting brain tips and health facts. If you have any questions related to these topics, please send them to and we’ll be sure to address them in a blog post.
