Interactive Metronome is an intensive computer based program used to improve a child's processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning, sensory processing and sequencing. Interactive Metronome is available through the All Children's Hospital Occupational Therapy Department.
The Occupational Therapist uses this program to tailor a treatment plan specific to each child's needs. The computer challenges the child to precisely match a rhythmic beat with synchronized hand and foot exercises. The child is given feedback through headphones that tells them how "on beat" they are. This feedback guides the child and helps improve their timing and ability to plan actions. This is a short-term intensive program scheduled in one-hour training sessions, 2-5 times per week. This may be in place of your regularly scheduled Occupational Therapy sessions.
If your child is already enrolled in occupational therapy (OT), talk to your therapist. If you are not currently enrolled in therapy, discuss this with your pediatrician and obtain a prescription for "OT evaluation and treatment".
Contact the Rehabilitation Services Patient Access Service Center at 727-767-7272 to schedule an appointment for an OT evaluation.
