Determining When & How to Introduce Feedback for Timing

Successfully transitioning your patient from Phase 1 (Learn the Reference Tone) to Phase Two (Learn the Guide Sounds) to facilitate neural timing & synchronization

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 a high number of repetitions over the course of IM training, feedback for timing is crucial for improving neural timing, synchronization, and functional outcomes. Individualizing your approach for patient-specific needs will be discussed.
