Making IM Simple: Why and How We Assess 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 why the assessment of timing & rhythm (i.e., neural timing & synchronization) is important and how impairment in this fundamental ability impacts cognitive, communicative, social/behavioral, and motor function & therapy outcomes. We will cover various modifications to the IM assessment based on your patient’s clinical presentation, and you will learn to interpret baseline IM timing assessment data in conjunction with other standardized tests & clinical observations in order to plan and implement individualized IM training for optimal & accelerated treatment outcomes.
