Interactive Metronome (IM) has been widely recognized for improving motor skills and now research is finding unexpected benefits to IM treatment. Clinicians working with cognitive, behavioral, social, communicative, and academic functions are finding substantial improvements in these areas:
(1) Attention and concentration
(2) Cognitive speed
(3)Executive function
(4) Auditory processing
(5) Language processing
(6) Motor control and co-ordination
(7) Memory problems
(8) Self control (aggression/impulsivity)
(9) Reading & math fluency
(10) Phonological awareness
(11) Speech apraxia
(12) Tourette’s Syndrome, tics,
(13) Stuttering
(14) Sensory processing

What is IM?
IM is a brain based assessment and treatment tool that has been shown to improve neurological functions of motor planning and sequencing (core functions of the brain). Reaching, grasping, aiming, speaking, walking, and listening all utilize motor planning and sequencing. Before IM, objective measurements were lacking and there were two important questions that were unanswered:
(1) What tool can precisely and objectively measure and document the degree of impairment to motor planning and sequencing?
(2) What is the most objective and efficient way to restore these core brain functions?

IM is the answer to both these questions. Clinicians can objectively measure motor planning and sequencing and assign a level of impairment in milliseconds. As the student improves, her ability to motor plan and sequence is reflected in improving millisecond averages.

What age group is IM appropriate for? Age 6 and above have been traditionally qualified; however, today chiropractic neurologists have been using IM with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in certain cases. Expected improvements in the areas of sensory processing, motor planning, language, and communication are measured and documented. Some students progress at a faster rate than others.
