Spring to Attention

When they were handing out awareness months, March really stepped up to the plate. It is home to not just one, but six awareness initiatives that are important to our Provider network. But never fear, we've got your back! Check out all of our great resources to help you raise awareness in March.

Video Games May Help Your Child

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.

World Down Syndrome Day

Developmental disabilities affect nearly 14% of the population, and that is a big deal to us here at Interactive Metronome® (IM). We want everyone to reach their fullest potential, whether it is in the classroom, board room or on the field. It's that TIME of the year. Get moving this spring with IM.

Meet Wendy Harron, our newest blogger!

Why I choose to use the Interactive Metronome (IM)

Hi there! My name is Wendy Harron and I am an Occupational Therapist. I have worked at A.I. duPont Hospital in Wilmington, DE for the past 20 years helping kids suffering from Developmental Delay,  Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Learning  Disabilities, ADD/ADHD,  Sensory Processing Disorder, and various other genetic and developmental disabilities.

When heard about the Interactive Metronome words like "Technology", "Computers", "Cowbells", "Clapping" and "Tapping" flooded my ears. How could any of these help a child who has special needs? It seems that there are tons of techniques and modalities out there to help our children. How do you know which one to choose? Therapeutic Listening Programs, Astronaut Training Protocols, Captain’s Log, Brain Gym…. the list goes on and on. Each one different and requiring investigation to see which one will work for your family and your child. I had been reviewing research about a program called Interactive Metronome, seeing its positive impact on not only children with special needs, but adults with special needs, children in school, musicians, football players and even golfers! This was something that I needed to check out!
