Interactive Metronome (IM)
IM is an evidence-based assessment and training tool used to improve timing, rhythm, and synchronization.
Timing in the brain is critical for attention, processing speed, speech/language, academic skills, and coordination.
IM employs game-like features that engage and challenge children to match a rhythmic beat with repetitive motor movements. As the child works to improve their game scores, their brain and body learn to work better together.
