Pediatric Best Practice Coaching
Certification & Coaching: IM Pediatric Best Practices
This online certification course has been designed to provide greater access to Interactive Metronome® Pediatric Best Practice Certification for providers who may be unable to attend a live workshop. Online Certification is structured over a ten week period and requires a commitment of attendance to each training module in correct sequence in order to receive certification and to be eligible for CEUs. The Education Department at Interactive Metronome® (IM) strives to provide a learning experience that is both broad and unique, and enables participants to relate to and cross-reference their own practice models. Participants will be guided through tools and techniques to help analyze and build their current and future applications of Interactive Metronome® techniques within the diverse field of pediatrics. Successful course completion leads to the Interactive Metronome® Advanced Pediatric Designation (IMAP). Optimal treatment outcomes are more easily attained when there are appropriate accommodations and modifications to account for age, developmental level, group dynamics and environmental factors.
