Provider Testimonial: “His parents were so happy. They never expected to be able to see him perform…”

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.

Rosita Dominates the Links with IM

We always talk about our success stories, and for good reason. We recently had a wonderful woman named Rosita who saw the success her husband had with IM training for Parkinson's disease, and she wanted to try it for herself. So, with the Masters now behind us, we wanted to share Rosita's golf gains with IM-Home®. After all, you don't have to be 21 to dominate the links. Our Providers are always working hard to treat individuals looking to improve various deficits and conditions, and some who ar  just looking for an edge in daily life.

Maggie is on the move with IM training

Maggie is a beautiful young girl that has Cerebral palsy, but she wasn't going to let that hold her back. Nope! She wanted to move...and that is where IM training was able to help. Although movement may initially be difficult for children with CP, IM training has been shown to help advance PT and OT goals by allowing users to work on flexibility, strength and endurance during traditional therapy sessions. So that is just what her OT and PT did, and now Maggie is walking unassisted for the first time. Read more of Maggie's success story here.
