Course Description:

Join us for a four week program leading to full IM Home Certification (IMHC).  IM Home is an expansion of Interactive Metronome, the cutting-edge neurological assessment and treatment tool that is redefining traditional expectations for pediatric and adult therapy outcomes.  This new system expands the ways these therapy outcomes can be achieved by making treatment more easily accessed, reducing the cost of treatment and allowing practitioners to develop programs that can be administered for clients who come to the clinic as well as those that receive some of their training sessions at home, school, work or in a care facility other than the practitioner’s office. Improve cognitive, communication, motor and sensory deficiencies in patients who struggle with a host of debilitating conditions, including Auditory and Sensory Processing Disorders, Dyslexia, and other Learning disorders, Autism Spectrum disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Tourette’s Syndrome, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury and more.

This stimulating course focuses on clinical application for IM Home with various patient populations.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be fully certified in IM Home and will demonstrate working knowledge of both technical and clinical applications of IM Home. 

Develop an understanding of Long Form Assessment (LFA) administration and review of LFA results for designing IM Home training plans to improve millisecond (ms) timing based on ms patterns, age of client and treatment goals.

Gain a more thorough understanding of training design, improve ability to adjust training plans and apply IM training techniques to advance therapeutic outcomes for clients with learning, attention, coordination and communication difficulties.

*Contact hours are offered pending successful completion of a written exam at the end of the course.
