The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the Interactive Metronome (IM), an evidence-based and powerful patented rhythm intervention with broad application that leverages technology to improve the brain’s efficiency and performance. Timing & rhythm are critical developmental skills that reflect the degree of synchronization between neural networks in the brain and greatly influence the acquisition of cognitive, communicative, sensory, motor and academic skills. It is evident from peer-reviewed research that the perception and reproduction of timing & rhythm sequences is markedly deficient compared to typically developing peers in the following conditions: Auditory Processing Disorder, Dyslexia and other reading disorders, Speech and Language Disorders, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Sensory Processing Disorders, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury. Observable symptoms of poor timing and rhythm include trouble with attention, working memory, executive functions, processing speed, auditory comprehension, articulation and other speech impairments, language and literacy development, math and other areas of academic achievement, dyspraxia, disruptive behavior and/or sensory over/under sensitivities. Ongoing research at Harvard University School of Medicine, Northwestern University, and other esteemed centers of academic excellence is providing vital information about both the clinical and biological impact of Interactive Metronome. There is no prerequisite to attend this introductory course.

FEATURED WEBINAR: Maintaining Your Patient Relationships: How SSDI Can Help

Register for Our Featured OnDemand Webinar for FREE!

Sustaining your therapy practice can be challenging when your adult patients experience financial difficulties themselves. This course explains how you can help your patients achieve better treatment outcomes by access to vital income through the federal insurance program called Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). SSDI is a vital alternative when your patients’ have experienced a chronic injury or illness that prevents them from working.

Health conditions more likely to qualify for SSDI include stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, cancer, myasthenia gravis, and neurological and degenerative medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and osteoarthritis.

Interactive Metronome is collaborating with disability services provider, Allsup, to bring training that outlines the importance of SSDI for adult patients, why it’s often overlooked as a resource, the complexity of the application and appeals process, and how you can easily guide them to support with this process. Participants will add to their options for helping maintain the therapy relationship with their adult patients for as long as they need treatment, and be able to restart therapy with those who may have stopped due to financial limitations.
