The Interactive Metronome (IM) is a neurological and rehabilitation program used to improve motor planning and sequencing. Practitioners in the field of speech- language pathology recognize the role of motor planning and sequencing in the acquisition of speech, language, communication skills, and cognition.
IM neurological and motor rehabilitation is a unique application of technology that can improve those underlying capacities, which are essential to patients' recovery from speech-language and other cognitive disorders. Through neuroplasticity, the neuromotor exercises that make up IM tasks stimulate the brain to adapt or create new neural pathways that compensate for injury or developmental delay, which results in functional outcomes.
IM neurological and motor rehabilitation can bring about or contribute to improvements in Language processing, Social communication, Planning and sequencing, Attention and concentration, & Control of impulsivity and aggression.
Today, there are more than 2,500 certified IM providers in over 1,700 clinics, hospitals and universities throughout the United States and Canada. Each day our community of providers continues to grow.
IM has received an abundance of media recognition including the CBS Early Show, CNN News, US News and World Report, as well as various segments that have aired on hundreds of TV affiliates, radio stations and national publications.
Interactive Metronome CEU credits are now offered throughout the United States. It is our goal to educate therapists and contribute to the functional rehabilitation of their patients.
