“We Got the Beat for Children with ASD”

Motor Timing and Movement Sequence Interventions to Support Treatment Outcomes in Children with Autism

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have difficulty with motor timing and sequential bilateral skills impacting their performance in daily activities and learning new skills. Children with ASD also have difficulty with emotional modulation and self-awareness impacting their social interactions with other peers. This presentation will focus on how the Interactive Metronome (IM) can support both motor function and social/emotional engagement in children with ASD. The presenter will provide research on the current use of the interactive metronome as treatment intervention for ASD, and analyze the evidence to support clinical reasoning. Intervention strategies will be discussed on how therapists can use utilize the IM as both a therapy intensive and how to incorporate within their weekly sessions with video examples and creative ideas to expand the therapist IM “bag of tricks” and help children become modulated, coordinated, and socially engaged to support successful participation in daily activities.
