Gavin a 10-year-old, IM-Home user, who has ASD and associated anxiety, typically can only remain calm for seconds to minutes during assemblies and concerts. After 8 sessions of IM-Home, it was unclear if there were any changes with Gavin, that is, until this year’s Christmas concert that his parents noticed a huge difference− "This year was different. His class was performing last. He sat through the entire concert calmly and quietly. When it was his class' turn, he was able to join them on stage. And he sang. And the whole time, he was tapping out the metronome beat on his leg.” His parents were so happy. They never expected to be able to see him perform in a Christmas concert, so it was a huge treat for them.
