IM training turns school into child’s play!
You don’t necessarily have to feel like there is a problem just because you want to improve academic performance. Schools these days have become so competitive; it all starts in pre-school, but it will continue into college, internships and the job market. With that much emphasis on quality education, it is important to make sure your child has every competitive advantage. It isn’t just about good grades anymore; children have full lives of their own, full of their own responsibilities and expectations. Your children have sporting matches, play dates, tutoring sessions, fine arts training, church and family responsibilities. Somewhere between all of that, they still have 7-8 hour school days and it would be nice for them to have a little bit of time to play.
IM training can make that life a little easier. Greater neural efficiency results in more efficient brain connectivity, communication and synchronization between the essential brain networks. When the brain’s neurons are working at peak performance, additional cognitive function that was being wasted can now be used for attention, memory, coordination and control. Quite simply, synchronizing your brain’s timing and rhythm results in highly efficient communication, improved processing and more fluid movement. Now, your child will reach their full potential academically, athletically and socially, which will make all those extracurricular activities a breeze.
The domain-general mechanism of timing is a “jack of all trades” mechanism that manifests itself in sleep cycles, speech patterns, ability to attend over time and overall efficacy of brain communication. This timing in the brain, or temporal processing, has been shown to be deficient in several common neurological conditions, a clear sign that it is connected to scholastic brain function. IM is the only training program that improves timing in the brain in an organized, systematic, flexible and engaging format.
Research shows that combining whole body movements with cognitive tasks leads to overall better outcomes. Interactive Metronome® is a patented and unique training tool that challenges thinking and movement simultaneously, providing real-time millisecond feedback to help synchronize the body’s “internal clock.”
Take Lauren, for example. Lauren is in advanced-placement (AP) classes. She is motivated, competitive and confident, but she feels like she can’t focus as well lately and she wants to improve at lacrosse. After only a limited amount of time with IM, Lauren reports that she is finishing her homework faster, has improved her lacrosse drills and feels more focused.
IM training is also great because you can take it home with you. You no longer have to worry about working trips to the clinic into your busy schedule. With IM-Home, your child is able to complete their training under the supervision of your therapist, but in the comfort of your own home. Ask your Provider about IM-Home today!
