Good morning all. Does anybody have direct experience of 'Interactive Metronome' please? (Interactive Metronome (IM) is a training program that supports people to overcome attention, memory, and coordination limitations)
Despite good progress in other areas, my son still has big problems with rhythm and coordination. He won't touch his drums (it upsets him when he can't play) and he's scared to get back to any kind of sports as he 'knows' he will be unable to do it like he could before his accident.
I am genuinely fascinated by the principal of IM - that the brain has an internal clock which manages neural timing and that this specific timing can be damaged by brain injury/stroke etc. But I'm not having much luck finding a practitioner in this country with specific experience (maybe I should train up myself!). Meanwhile, I have set up a general 'metronome app' on my phone which taps out a regular beat when my son exercises (mind you, he doesn't do that much at the moment either!). It is fascinating though to see, for example, that he can clench his fist much faster and more regularly when he has the 'tap-tap-tap' at the same time.
Apologies if I haven't explained this very well and given you all a headache - I know it's giving me one! Have a lovely day.
