Interactive Metronome

For Developmental Learning Disabilities

The Franklin Speech & Learning Center offers therapy using the Interactive Metronome in both the Franklin and Nashville clinics. Speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists have been trained and are certified to provide this unique approach as part of a traditional therapy program.

The Interactive Metronome is a research based intervention program that has proven of benefit to children and adults with a range of neuro-rehabilitative and developmental learning disabilities. The program is designed to strengthen processing abilities which in turn, improve attention, language processing, sequencing, motor planning, fundamental cognitive abilities and impulse control.

Treatment tasks are presented in a hierarchical fashion, progressively challenging the individual to fine tune their processing abilities. Tasks require that the individual synchronize motor movement(s) with a computer generated beat presented through headphones. A crucial element of this program is the provision of audio and visual feedback to encourage the individual to adjust their performance to achieve greater task proficiency. Advanced tasks incorporate motor sequences, visual only mode to strengthen visual processing, distractions, cognitive switching and divided attention skills.

Appropriate therapy candidates include, but are not limited to, those with the following:

Sensory Integration Disorders, ADHD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Stroke, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Cerebral Palsy, Non-verbal Learning Disability, Balance Disorders, and Parkinson’s Disease.

In treatment, patients learn to:

  • Focus and attend for longer periods of time
  • Increase physical endurance and stamina
  • Filter out internal and external distractions
  • Improve ability to self-monitor mental performance
  • Progressively improve coordinated performance for both motor and cognitive tasks

Interactive Metronome is offered at our Nashville, Franklin and Nolensville locations.
