Gains made across the spectrum

 

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.

It’s amazing how in just a few days training with IM’s gait mate, a sophomore football player made some significant cornerstones in his rehabilitation process. In just 5 days he mastered the walking gait (heel stride) that is usually the most difficult in the program and could move on to work on his jogging and running gait. The Interactive Metronome combined with IM-home, provided for a much faster and easier recovery.

Video: IM helps Children & Adults with Dyslexia

Because we know how important videos have become in today's world we have started compiling footage of how the Interactive Metronome (IM) & IM-Home can help with a variety of conditions, including dyslexia.

ADD and ADHD: To Medicate or Not?

Many parents who hear the diagnosis ADD or ADHD are sent into a tailspin of information overload and “friendly” advice from a variety of sources. As a pediatric Occupational Therapist, I am often faced with the task of helping parents and caregivers interpret what the information they have been given means for their child. Here are a few common questions I get during evaluations: “Will medication really help my child?”; “Why aren’t the medications helping my child sleep at night?”; “When can we expect to wean our child off medication now that he’s started therapy?” and, “Will a special diet be a substitute for medication?”
