The Interactive Metronome

The Interactive Metronome (IM) is an innovative neuro-cognitive therapy tool used by our speech/language pathologist and certified providers to improve and develop the temporal processing that affects attention concentration, motor planning, sequencing, speech/language delays, and various other cognitive and learning disabilities. A scientifically based intervention, IM focuses on improving millisecond timing skills in the brain as well as natural reactions. This timing in the brain is critical to cognitive and auditory processing, reading fluency, learning skills, speech, and communication generation even benefiting professional athletes.
Interactive Metronome can be implemented with people of all ages with a wide variety of needs. Individualized planning determines the exact tasks, sequences, and paired skill (i.e.-speech, visuo-motor) modalities that are coupled with the interactive metronome. As individuals engage in fun and personalized bi-hemospheric exercises executive function skills have been noted to significantly improve.
Sharon Cohen 
The new idea of this decade is that the brain can mold, change, and grow given the right stimulation in the right pattern at the right time. It stands to reason that focusing on developing neurological pathways through bi-hemispheric patterns, repetition and consistency will support growth in needed areas. It is time to look at individuals beyond the behavioral and educational domain and consider the role the brain has in fostering limitations.
Furthermore, IM is an engaging and rewarding therapy tool that can be completely customized to work with the individual's interests and needs. With the addition of interactive metronome therapy our clients have been demonstrating faster progress toward their individualized cognitive and commutative goals.
There is never a guarantee nor, a "one-fits-all intervention to improve communication or cognition. We believe that connecting and strengthening the specific areas of the brain which support receptive/expressive speech, attention and language function, as well as cognition is optimal to access growth in executive function skills, without which independence and building relationships is challenging. the results we are seeing are promising while the feedback from clients and families is motivating.
