Ikuya was a fun loving kid, but he just couldn’t stay on task. Additionally, he was acting childish for his age, withdrawing at school, generally uncoordinated and he was having difficulty understanding instructions. When Ikuya’s mother began researching ADHD treatments, she came upon IM training and it changed their life forever. In just a few weeks Ikuya’s handwriting improved, he began answering questions appropriately and he wasn’t forgetting assignments. There was also a marked improvement at school; his mother reported that he came home a few weeks later with his first 100% on a quiz. On top of that, he is back to playing and enjoying activities with his classmates!

Ryan is an 8 year old boy with an energetic, all-encompassing, endearing personality paired with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Ryan had been going to conventional Occupational Therapy sessions for several years. As he progressed with the [IM] program, it became clear – Ryan was learning to reference the auditory beat and identify when he was too fast or too slow in his response speed, he was learning from the ‘inside-out’ what it meant when someone told him to ‘slow down’. This program enabled Ryan to access Interactive Metronome® interventions at home for short bursts before test taking, for longer periods when transitioning to newer challenges required for maturation (consider the stressors involved in Middle School!) and even to wind down and ‘reboot his brain’.

At the time Tara started with Interactive Metronome®, she was a 14-year-old girl who faced motor coordination challenges, and also had problems with memory, recall, and environmental auditory and motor processing. It affected her independence, as her inability to take directions and follow routines affected her ability to care for herself. After only a few Interactive Metronome® sessions, Tara was able to complete a movement sequence independently, and adjust her rate of response to reflect the tempo of each exercise more accurately, while using her upper and lower extremities independently.

Even her strength and endurance has improved while carrying out motor coordination tasks. And she can now complete multiple -step tasks more accurately at home – and is now able to follow a recipe!

Jorden is a 13 year-old boy with Cerebral Palsy, agenesis of the Corpus Callosum, seizures, developmental delays and cortical blindness. When Jorden was born, doctors told his parents that he wouldn’t live very long and they should just enjoy the time they had with him. That wasn’t the answer they wanted…and Jorden was too strong to let that happen either. He has been receiving therapeutic services for a few years, but IM training really pushed him over the top. He is now dressing himself, bathing, going to the barber and singing along at church. As it turns out, Jorden loves classical music and puzzles!

Sawyer is special little boy who was having problems with sensory processing disorder (SPD). His nervous system was over-responsive and it was especially affecting his feeding. He would reject any food that wasn’t the consistency of baby food, even vomiting in response to different textures; this trait was shared with an uncle who only had been able to eat five foods during his life. IM training was initially done to expose Sawyer and his parents to IM; no real treatment plan was developed and he was not doing full sessions of IM exercises. The results were amazing! One week after the sessions, I received a video from Sawyer’s parents…he was not only eating a peanut cracker, but willingly feeding his self! His family reports that he seems to be blossoming and they have decided to keep up training with IM-Home.
