Dr. Christine Anderson now offers the Interactive Metronome® (IM), a computer-based technology that enhances motor planning, sequencing and timing in children. IM can improve speech, communication, coordination and learning, as these are performance-based skills that depend on the ability of the brain to plan and sequence actions and ideas.
In many children, clinical studies have found that performance on IM exercises correlates with improved academic achievement in areas such as mathematics, language, reading, and attention to task. In one clinical study the Interactive Metronome® was found to produce significant gains in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in the areas of concentration, motor planning, control of aggression, language processing and reading. These findings are consistent with recent research on the growth of the brain that indicates that environmental influences, not just genetics, can facilitate a child’s development.
The Interactive Metronome® involves the principles of the traditional musical metronome, combined with the precision of a personal computer to create engaging interactive training exercises, including games to keep kids motivated. Like training wheels on a bicycle, a patented auditory guidance system progressively challenges participants to improve their motor planning, sequencing and rhythmic timing performance.
Interactive Metronome® wheels can be used by all age groups and those children with special needs. IM-Home® is the Interactive Metronome® (IM) for home-use. IM-home is beneficial to those who have time and travel constraints and aids in having children be able to do their IM exercises on a consistent basis. Dr. Anderson can work with patients remotely to oversee your child's Interactive Metronome® training for their continued success.
