- The goal of this oriented program encourages students to match a metronome beat with specific hand and foot exercises, and provides real-time feedback in milliseconds.
Metronome therapy makes a proven difference in the following areas:
- Working memory- the ability to story information and ideas. Critical for word recognition, reading comprehension, and following instructions.
- Attention- the ability to focus on a specific task and ignore distractions. Essential for academic work, sports, and daily activities.
- Processing- the rate at which a person can accurately understand and use information.
- Sequencing- the ability to arrange information in correct order. Imperative for time management, analytical thinking and math skills.
- Motor coordination- the ability to combine motor movements to accomplish an intended task such as riding a bike, tying a shoe or hitting a tennis or golf ball.
Integrated Listening Systems (iLs)
- iLs is a multi-sensory program for improving brain function.
- The mission of iLs is to help individuals of all ages elevate their quality of life by improving brain function and emotional resilience through music, movement, technology and education.
- We use iLs to help organize the brain and enhance auditory and visual processing as well as, fine and gross motor skills.
- PACE stands for Processing and Cognitive Enhancement.
- PACE provides thinking and processing skill training, which improves processing speed, memory, visual processing, word attack skills, auditory analysis, logic, and reasoning skills.
- PACE builds and strengthens the processing skills that are necessary to make learning easier and faster.
- Lindamood Bell is a reading program based on the principals of Samuel T Orton and Anna Gillingham.
- Pat Lindamood developed this program in the 1980’s to help her students with auditory processing difficulty and weak phonemic awareness.
- The LIPS part of Lindamood Bell addresses the needs of students who need to develop phonemic awareness.
- The Seeing Stars portion is based on the principal that Symbol Imagery helps embed the phoneme grapheme relationship and helps student improve their reading and spelling of sight words.
- The Visualizing and Verbalizing Program builds visualization skills and verbalization of what is visualized. It helps with reading comprehension, written expression, brain organization, and some executive function skills.
- A program utilizing headphones with bone conduction and air conduction worn by clinician and student to enhance speech, language and auditory skills.
