Interactive Metronome

Breakthrough Therapy Center, South Florida’s progressive speech and occupational therapy center in Ft. Lauderdale (Davie – Southwest Broward, FL) offers additional programs for children with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Certified therapists in Interactive Metronome use IM (Interactive Metronome) as a tool to improve neurological processes of sequencing, motor planning, and processing. Interactive Metronome Therapy (IM Therapy) requires the child to listen to a computer-generated reference tone, which is heard through headphones, and requires the child match the rhythmic beat or tone with repetitive motor actions either with their hands or feet. A few diagnoses in which Interactive Metronome has been found to improve the function and recovery of individuals includes Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Delays/ Learning Disabilities, Auditory Processing Disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder/ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), and Sensory Processing Disorders. As a result of Interactive Metronome treatment or “IM Therapy,” children will increase their physical endurance; improve their coordination, motor control, reading, cognitive processing, language processing, auditory processing, as well as control of their aggression and impulsivity. Interactive Metronome has assisted in making massive improvements in attention span, concentration, and the like.
