Illinois Neuro & Physical Rehabilitation Offers Interactive Metronome Training to Improve Cognitive, Behavioral, Social and Motor Skills.
Illinois Neuro & Physical Rehabilitation now offers a therapy to improve speech/communication, coordination and learning, in adults and children suffering from a number of conditions including ADHD and Autism, Asperger’s, and Sensory Processing Disorders. Dr. Jerry Iavarone is a chiropractic physician who is also Board Certified in Childhood Developmental Disorders and a Certified Interactive Metronome Physician. Interactive Metronome® (IM) is a computer-based technology that encourages users to match the computer’s rhythm, thereby improving their internal sense of timing, An increasing amount of scientific evidence demonstrates that the brain’s internal clock is integral in the development and maintenance of many cognitive, behavioral, social and motor skills.
Unfortunately, when the brain’s timing malfunctions due to a medical condition—such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Autism—or is disrupted by a traumatic brain injury, the associated physical, mental and emotional symptoms can be difficult to overcome. Locally, Illinois Neuro & Physical Rehabilitation now offers Interactive Metronome’s ‘rhythmic and movement training exercises to improve functioning in children and adults.
“We’ve always known that timing in the brain affected a wide variety of conditions, but until Interactive Metronome we did not have a single therapy that could improve timing in both children and adults,” says Dr. Iavarone of Illinois Neuro & Physical Rehabilitation. “Patients find Interactive Metronome to be a challenging, yet fun therapy that keeps their attention, and produces significant results.”
Interactive Metronome involves the principles of the traditional musical metronome, combined with the precision of a personal computer to create engaging interactive training exercises. The program uses head phones along with hand and foot sensors to coordinate movements to computer-generated musical beats. 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® training is currently available in Wood Dale at Illinois Neuro & Physical Rehabilitation. The training can also be done in the comfort of your own home, with IM-Home. This home unit gives the patient the ability to train at home with a customized protocol and monitoring will be performed by Dr. Iavarone. Dr. Iavarone will evaluate each patient and prescribed a course of therapy.
