Empowering Ryan’s Progress: IM’s Impact on Autism and Self-Awareness

Ryan is an 8 year old boy with an energetic, all-encompassing, endearing personality paired with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Ryan had been going to conventional Occupational Therapy sessions for several years. As he progressed with the [IM] program, it became clear – Ryan was learning to reference the auditory beat and identify when he was too fast or too slow in his response speed, he was learning from the ‘inside-out’ what it meant when someone told him to ‘slow down’. This program enabled Ryan to access Interactive Metronome® interventions at home for short bursts before test taking, for longer periods when transitioning to newer challenges required for maturation (consider the stressors involved in Middle School!) and even to wind down and ‘reboot his brain’.
