Many patients present with developmental or acquired cognitive-communicative deficits that affect their daily productivity and their ability to relate to others effectively. A significant number of these patients are functioning at a higher level despite deficits that interfere with work and home life. They quickly plateau in response to traditional cognitive-communicative therapy approaches.
These patients are perfect candidates for integrating Interactive Metronome (IM) into rehabilitation in order to target executive functions, memory, thought organization, and various levels of attention/concentration by addressing critical mental timing, rhythm & neural synchronization (AKA temporal processing). Introducing more advanced cognitive-communicative exercises along with Interactive Metronome at the right time in the rehabilitation process can facilitate faster recover of function and return to the community.
Brain Injury/Stroke Courses
Brain injuries can occur anywhere, anytime and to anyone. Whether it is external trauma, disease or a stroke, lingering effects on the brain can rob someone of his or her quality of life. Restoring that quality of life for brain injury patients is the goal of these courses.
