We love to share our success stories, and this month is no different. In honor of Autism Awareness Month, we are going to be shining the spotlight on some amazing clients who have taken great strides with IM training. With a little determination and some guidance from our wonderful Providers, many children with autism have seen improvements in behavior, attention, communication and sensory processing.

Do you know how timing in the brain can affect children with autism? Many of the symptoms associated with autism are also directly related to Neurotiming®, more specifically, deficient Neurotiming®. Find out more in this article from the December/January '15 Edition of the Autism NoteBook.
We often get questions on how to use IM with specific populations, how to work with the equipment and anything else that is causing our Providers headaches. Amy Vega, a fabulous SLP and our Clinical Education Director, is here to answer those questions from time to time. Today, she tackles an important question for parents and our OT and PT professionals: I know every kid is different, but approximately how many sessions would be typical for an almost non-speaking 15 yo with autism?
Gamification. Surely, some out there have heard this new buzz word, but what is it all about? Well, maybe you hadn't noticed, but everything around you has become a game. Your cell phone is pre-loaded with several games. Perhaps Angry Birds or Candy Crush Saga sound familiar? Your children have probably been trying to convince you to buy the newest Playstation, Xbox or Nintendo. Even shopping has become a game with apps like ShopKick. So what does all this mean for your child's brain? Is the bombardment of flashing screens doing more harm than good? Read more to find out.
This April is Autism Awareness Month and we want to help spread the word! Our IM providers work with clients who have ASD every day. We want to thank these providers for their tireless efforts and help educate the world about how special people with ASD really are.

Mizuki was 3 when he was diagnosed with autism and his parents knew he had a tough road ahead of him if they didn’t start early. So they tried many therapies over the years and when he was 8 they found one of our only IM Providers in Japan to go to, IMproved. After just 15 sessions Mizuki was doing amazing. He was able to communicate more normally and hold eye contact now. His handwriting became legible and was doing math at grade level. His balance has improved, and he runs more smoothly than before and he can even ride his bicycle in standing position. Mizuki made such great gains in the clinic that they purchased a home unit for continued success. Read his full story below.
