Developing the IM Training Plan

Learn How to Manipulate & Leverage IM Settings According to Individual Patient Needs in Order to Facilitate Timing & Rhythm

The purpose of this course is to advance your clinical knowledge & implementation of the Interactive Metronome (IM) within the healthcare setting. You will learn how to select appropriate software settings as you begin IM training with your patient following the completion of the initial baseline assessment. By manipulating & leveraging IM settings, you will provide your patient with an engaging and rewarding learning experience as (s)he improves neural synchronization & function over the course of training. Individualizing your approach for patient-specific needs will also be discussed.
