Child's Play OT Services offers an intervention that has been shown to improve speech/communication, coordination and learning in children suffering from a number of conditions including auditory processing disorders, sensory integration disorder, communication disorders, ADHD, and autism. The Interactive Metronome © (IM) is a research-based training program that helps children and adults overcome attention, memory, and coordination limitations. IM works for people of all ages who have a variety of conditions affecting their cognitive and physical abilities. IM is a computer-based technology that encourages users to match the computer's rhythm through motion, thereby improving their internal sense of timing. An increasing amount of scientific evidence demonstrates that the brain's internal clock is integral to the development and maintenance of many cognitive, behavioral, social and motor skills.
When the brain's timing malfunctions due to conditions such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or autism - the associated physical, mental and emotion symptoms can be difficult to overcome. Our clinic offers Interactive Metronome's rhythmic and movement training exercises to improve functioning in children and adolescents.
