April was granted her BS degree in Occupational Therapy from St Ambrose University in Davenport, IA in 1991. She obtained a BA in Psychology at the same time. She has furthered her education by taking courses and reading materials that foster her knowledge in helping clients recover neurological functioning from the lowest level to the higher cognitive and executive levels (such as Boehme Approach to Treatment of the Baby, Sensory Integration Clinics (various), The Listening Program, Alert Program, Treating Drug Affected Children, OT in the Schools, Benbow’s Loops and Other Groups, Marriage and Family Counseling, Nutrition, Studies in Neurology, and various other certification classes.) She uses IM as an intensive neurological treatment option for qualified clients and as an introductory functional treatment option for pediatrics.
Is IM-Home Right for you?
You are probably familiar with IM from my practice. It is a wonderful therapy tool that I’ve found to improve:
- Focus & Attention
- Coordination & Balance
- Control of Aggression & Impulsivity
- What IM-Home is
- How IM-Home works
- Why IM-Home works
- Results from real patients who have used IM-Home
Below are 2 examples of my many successes with IM:
“John” is a 9-year-old boy who was diagnosed with Asperger’s at the age of 3 and at age 4 he was diagnosed with PDD-NOS. He also has auditory processing and motor coordination delays His parents contacted IM directly for the IM-Home as a virtual client. He worked with an OT, April Christopherson, who lives in a different state and never physically saw him. John’s mother oversaw the treatment while April set up the training plans. They communicated with frequent emails and phone conversations to work out any questions or concerns. Following the IM-Home training, John’s mother reports that he has improved in overall motor coordination, self regulation, focus, organization, and academic performance. He is also demonstrating improved coordination and motor planning while playing soccer and participating in tae-kwon-do. John has more confidence in himself and continues to show areas of improvement, after the training was complete.
“Will” is a 72-year-old male who suffered a left temporal lobe stroke started IM-Home 60 days post discharge from inpatient therapy. His main complaints were: right side weakness, fatigue, irritability, focus, concentration, emotional instability, and memory problems. Will’s daughter, who was familiar with IM, oversaw his home training. Using both sides of his body, he trained 3-4 times per week, working up to 1800 repetitions with IM-Home. After he completes his IM- Home exercises for the day he then challenges his brain with cognitive skill building exercises. Today, Will reports that he is happier, has more energy, less fatigue, and has better working memory. He is now able to enjoy yard work and recreational activities with his wife and grandchildren again. Will continues to train with IM-Home to maintain and improve his level of motor and cognitive functioning.
