Grading the Task: Transitioning From Basic Timing to More Advanced Skills

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 effectively transition from working on basic timing in Phases 1-3 where you addressed fundamental cognitive & motor skills, to Phase 4 where your patient will learn to generalize timing skills to further improve cognitive, communicative, and motor skills. Discussion will include information specific to the practices of Speech Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy, & Physical Therapy, including tips for grading therapy activities for success.
