IM Benefits - Education

Parents and Educators have long recognized that standard teaching methods do not reach all students the same. The standard approach to educating children usually means that children with cognitive deficits and developmental disorders rarely receive the full complement of training needed to flourish. In the competitive classroom some children can easily be left behind.  This has been tackled by placing children in extra after school lessons where the child is exposed to additional same style approach to teaching.  Often children and parent become frustrated and the scope of the child's ability becomes limited as the child and parent start to accept that maybe, what is being taught is not for the child.  Children need to be motivated and see the sky is the limit.  This is where IM comes in. 
These results are not limited to just school aged children but to all students across all ages

Part of what makes IM so unique is its ability to improve domain-general mechanisms. The domain-general mechanism of timing is a “jack of all trades” mechanism that manifests itself in sleep cycles, speech patterns, ability to attend over time and overall efficacy of brain communication. This timing in the brain, or temporal processing, has been shown to be deficient in several common conditions, including everything from mild learning disability to severe developmental disorders; clearly, neuro-timing is essential for the brain to work at peak levels. IM is the only training program that improves timing in the brain in an organized, systematic, flexible and engaging format.

Research shows that combining whole body movements with cognitive tasks leads to overall better outcomes. Interactive Metronome® is a patented and unique training tool that challenges thinking and movement simultaneously, providing real-time millisecond feedback to help synchronize the body’s “internal clock.” When your brain’s functional networks are working efficiently the neurons are able to fire more often and in sync. That results in improved communication, memory, processing and coordination today, and the stronger neural networks can help prevent some of the damaging effects of future conditions.

Backed by solid research, IM training helps clients improve in the following areas:

  • Handwriting
  • Attention
  • Working memory
  • Processing speed
  • Reading fluency
  • Self-monitoring and impulse control
  • Planning & sequencing
  • Math
  • Literacy
