Using IM in the Schools

Many Interactive Metronome (IM) providers work within a variety of school-based settings. For this reason, it is often necessary to vary the set-up and application of IM. One of the key issues discussed among school providers is the need to be creative, flexible and above all, patient in order to get IM up and running in the schools.Read More

This course will cover various academic settings and will equip IM providers with the necessary tools for transitioning to the next step in Interactive Metronome use – whether it be related to finding funding, communicating with school administration, or fine-tuning an already established IM program in the schools.

Early Intervention Courses

It is well established that the rate of development is most rapid during the preschool years. Early intervention is critical to prevent or minimize the future impact of disability. These webinars are great for anyone working with infant & toddler populations that may already be showing signs of developmental delays and motor difficulties. Additionally, the hands-on approach to IM training that has been so successful with young children has also been shown to be effective for older children and adults with severe disabling conditions.

Strategies for Facilitating Development in Toddlers & Preschoolers

The Interactive Metronome (IM) in has been used as a speech therapy modality in The Language Learning Center, Inc. for approximately 8 years [at the time of this recording in 2009]. Initially used primarily with clients exhibiting learning disabilities, difficulties in recognizing language components and processing delays, the treatment has now been expanded to provide IM to clients with more profound medical diagnoses, such as Asperger’s, Autism, seizure disorders, etc., who did not fit into the typical age expectant, physical ability profile that her prior clients fell within.

Read More

Results of IM treatment on this population were amazing, particularly in the areas of auditory concentration, focus, verbal understanding and ability to interact appropriately in family/social settings. Working with these specialized populations showed the principles of IM therapy are effective even when maximum tactile assistance, positional modifications and individualized client reinforcements were required. This willingness to take IM “out-of-the-box” and the consistently amazing results lead to the development of a modified protocol to treat a 22 month old diagnosed with Agenesis of the Corpus Collosum. Ongoing treatment and study of this child has resulted in phenomenal gains in gross motor, fine motor and speech, astounding her parents as well as her PT and OT therapists.

Addressing Hemispheric Imbalances with Interactive Metronome®

In order for the human brain to function as a whole, both left and right cerebral hemispheres continuously communicate via electrical impulses. Recent research shows that when the two sides of the brain do not mature at the same rate, imbalance and impaired communication between the hemispheres occurs. Hemispheric imbalance contributes to a myriad of behavioral, social, and learning disorders.Read More

Advanced diagnostic images show a pattern of hemispheric imbalance among the brains of children and adults with diagnoses of ADHD, Dyslexia, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. This course introduces the certified IM provider to the concept of hemispheric imbalances in children and adults and how to address these imbalances using the Interactive Metronome.

With exercises, proper execution and perseverance are generally of paramount importance: it is important to ensure clients do them right and keep doing them. With activities, simplicity and ease are generally of paramount importance: it is important to remain gentle and encourage clients to use as little effort as possible. This course will explore three basic questions that are important to consider as part of any Interactive Metronome program to ensure success: 1) What are some common difficulties client’s encounter with IM activities? 2) What activities can be assigned for homework to help these clients through those difficulties?, and 3)How can you introduce these activities to your clients within the context of IM sessions?

Combining Technologies: Driving Functional Neuroplasticity

Therapists and educators now have at their finger tips a wealth of technological advances that are providing both positive outcomes and valuable insights. One of these tools is the Interactive Metronome Program, which is rapidly becoming established in its contributions to assessing and treating time perception or an individual’s ‘internal clock’ Read More

critical for speech and language, cognitive abilities like focus, memory, reading, and learning, and motor coordination. Alongside IM, additional tools have been adopted to develop auditory frequency reception and expression. Arguably, the most fundamental feature to which the auditory system is attuned is frequency. Several researchers have developed the idea that frequency is the auditory analogue of space in vision, in part because of the way in which sensory transduction occurs; whereas the retina and primary visual cortex are organized spatiotopically, the cochlea and primary auditory cortex are organized tonotopically. Frequency, along with time, are the two “indispensable attributes” of audition, whereas space and time are the two indispensable attributes of vision. (Kubovy and Van Valkenburg, 2001). In the presentation, providers will further analyze the components of each frequency reception with time perception, their neurological constructs and influence upon development, recovery and performance. Participants will be able to identify key components of each construct and apply such principles to overall treatment planning. We are now armed with more information about these new technologies and how they alone fit into the treatment picture, but do you ever wonder how best to combine these interventions. Following this presentation, you will be better equipped to formulate sound clinical rationales for the use of these technologies in combination to promote maximum brain potential. Come to this presentation with specific cases in mind and share in this cross-disciplinary multi-media discussion.

Integrating IM into Interventions for SPD and Dyspraxia

Sensory processing is how the brain takes in information from the body and the environment, organizes that information and then produces an adaptive response (a motor response, an attentional response, an emotional regulation response) to that information.Read More

Dyspraxia, often thought of as motor planning, involves difficulty coordinating cognitive planning and sequencing to execute skilled motor actions. Jean Ayres, PhD, was the occupational therapist who pioneered this theory and developed the formalized evaluation process and child-directed therapeutic intervention to address these areas. Many of the underlying senses involved with sensory processing and praxis problems can be addressed with the Interactive Metronome. Using rhythm and timing inherent to IM activities can serve as a complementary intervention to classical sensory integration therapy.

Speech/Language Courses

Research shows that an individual’s ability to synchronize motor movements with a steady auditory beat is directly linked to the auditory brainstem’s response to sound. Those that can synchronize more accurately, as measured in milliseconds, have less neural jitter and can produce and process sound more accurately, leading to more normal development of speech, language and literacy skills. On the other hand, those that struggle with timing & rhythm have more neural jitter in the auditory system resulting in disordered development.

IM Exercise Adaptations for Training Soccer Players

During this webinar we will explore the importance of focus, concentration, rhythm and timing, coordination, balance, motor planning and sequencing, and decision making; skills that are vital in any sports including soccer. Playing soccer requires several types of skills, including physical, mental and emotional. Read More

Some of these skills come naturally to some players but must be learned by others. Whether naturally skilled or not, all players must hone their soccer-playing skills to be competitive. Physical skills that must be learned and mastered in order to play competitive soccer include stamina, speed, strength, reaction, ability and coordination. Reaction and coordination are skills that typically come naturally, but can also be improved through extensive and repetitive practice. Game-specific skills need to be developed for soccer players to effectively play the game. Specific skills include dribbling, heading, passing and punting. When developing and refining dribbling skills, players use all parts of their feet to pass, change direction and kick the ball. Physical abilities come into play as players use their spatial awareness, peripheral vision, speed and agility to effectively play the game. Soccer requires several mental skills that enable players to understand the rules, formations, position responsibilities and objectives of the game. Players must exercise their mental skills to keep track of vital game information. IM training has the potential to fill the gap that currently exists between unique sporting skills such as these identified as necessary for peak performance.

Backtracking Golf Shot Outcome Measures: Investigating Golf Swing Performance Measures to Gain a Better Understanding of the Effects of IM Training

The effects of IM-training on golf performance have – so far – only been evaluated by examining the outcome of the golf shot. No studies have yet investigated the effect of IM-, or any other type of timing-training, on the kinematic characteristics of the golf swing performance.Read More

This webinar has its starting-point from a published scientific paper that examines the effects of IM-training on the above mentioned kinematic characteristics. The webinar further aims to explain what variables of golf swing performance/execution that the IM-training affected. More specifically, we will delineate whether IM-training influences the timing and rhythm variables, or the co-ordination and synergy of the golf swing performance. Moreover, we will discuss possible ways of interpreting motor performances, as well as highlighting theories within the motor-timing domain that may give us a better hunch about how timing and motor control relates. In short, the webinar focuses on the influence of IM training on the kinematic properties of golf-swing performance, the methods used to assess possible changes in golf swing performance, and the theories that best explain our findings.
