Let IM be the missing piece…
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) presents a unique set of challenges. Children deal with a wide range of symptoms and require very different treatment plans. Children that have this special blend of social and communication troubles face very unique challenges, especially in over-crowded schools.
ASD is related to behavior, emotions and communication, not intelligence. Children with ASD may learn, think and interact in their own unique way, but nearly half of those diagnosed with autism have average or above average intelligence. In fact, many of these people, regardless of IQ, have exceptional abilities or savantism in music, art, mathematics, literature and computer science. This can make training with these children a challenge.
However, it doesn’t have to be a challenge. IM training is engaging and motivating, which helps keep children happy during sessions. Marcus’ parents are thrilled with his improvement after IM training. He is finally able to shower himself, dress, feed himself, walk smoothly and hold proper posture.
We love to hear success stories and there are plenty more to read down below. Go ahead, check them out.
Timing is a domain-general mechanism and it is the basis for attention, working memory and processing speed, all of which are critical for social interaction, attention, handwriting, behavior and language development. 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. IM 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.”
All of that and you don’t even have to leave your house. Now, IM training doesn’t have to mean more time in the clinic. No more worrying about fitting training into your 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 living room, bedroom, office, etc. Ask your Provider about IM-Home today!
