Take Your IM Certification to the Next Level
Congratulations, you have completed the IM Certification Course and are officially certified! Now its time for your Clinical Certification.
Refresh what you learned during the IM Certification Course and get more practical hands-on experience before training your first client. After successfully passing the Clinical Certification post-test you will be eligible to register for the IM-Home Certification Coaching Course.
Clinical Certification & Coaching
Congratulations, you have completed the IM Certification Course and are officially certified! Now it’s time for your Clinical Certification.
This on-demand competency program follows the basic training of the Interactive Metronome Certification Course and ensures that newly certified IM providers are prepared to integrate the Interactive Metronome System into their clinical practice. Participants will develop further understanding of Long Form Assessment (LFA) administration & interpretation. They will gain greater confidence with developing and adapting individualized IM training programs based upon each client’s particular timing patterns & performance and will select the appropriate IM System tool to meet the client’s needs. Lastly, participants will complete a short course of IM training in order to get a better feel for the program and what will be expected from their clients. Research has shown that millisecond timing matters! An IM provider’s personal timing skills are critical, especially at times when they must provide hands-on assistance to their clients. Course participants must have completed the basic Interactive Metronome Certification Course prior to undertaking this training.

Lunch & Learn Webinar Series
The purpose of this course is to advance your clinical knowledge & implementation of the Interactive Metronome (IM) within the healthcare setting. You will learn why the assessment of timing & rhythm (i.e., neural timing & synchronization) is important and how impairment in this fundamental ability impacts cognitive, communicative, social/behavioral, and motor function & therapy outcomes. We will cover various modifications to the IM assessment based upon your patient’s clinical presentation, and you will learn to interpret baseline IM timing assessment data in conjunction with other standardized tests & clinical observations in order to plan and implement individualized IM training for optimal & accelerated treatment outcomes.
The purpose of this course is to advance your clinical knowledge & implementation of the Interactive Metronome® (IM) within the healthcare setting. You will learn how to select appropriate software settings as you begin IM training with your patient following completion of the initial baseline assessment. By manipulating & leveraging IM settings, you will provide your patient with an engaging and rewarding learning experience as (s)he improves neural synchronization & function over the course of training. Individualizing your approach for patient-specific needs will also be discussed.
The purpose of this course is to advance your clinical knowledge & implementation of the Interactive Metronome® (IM) within the healthcare setting. This course will focus in more depth on feedback for timing & rhythm. When is it appropriate to introduce feedback for timing? What manner of feedback is best suited to your patient? How do you determine whether auditory, visual, or combined auditory-visual feedback will be most effective? In addition to high number of repetitions over the course of IM training, feedback for timing is crucial for improving neural timing, synchronization and functional outcomes. Individualizing your approach for patient-specific needs will be discussed.
The purpose of this course is to advance your clinical knowledge & implementation of the Interactive Metronome (IM) within the healthcare setting. You will learn how to effectively transition from working on basic timing in Phases 1-3 where you addressed fundamental cognitive & motor skills, to Phase 4 where your patient will learn to generalize timing skills to further improve cognitive, communicative, and motor skills. Discussion will include information specific to the practices of SpeechLanguage Pathology, Occupational Therapy, & Physical Therapy, including tips for grading therapy activities for success.
The purpose of this course is to advance your clinical knowledge & implementation of the Interactive Metronome (IM) within the healthcare setting. As you are already aware, how you document and bill for your services determines to a large extent whether you will be reimbursed. Here, we will focus on specific terminology for documentation & the creation of functional & measurable therapy goals/objectives for IM®. CPT codes for OT, PT, SLP, & PSYCH services will also be discussed within the context of IM service delivery.
