Coach Tricia and client Carolyn during her summer peak performance training.
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is an evidence-based assessment and training tool that measures and improves neurotiming, or the synchronization of neural impulses within key brain networks for cognitive, communicative, sensory and motor performance. As the individual activates a trigger in time with a steady auditory beat, IM technology provides real-time auditory and visual feedback for millisecond timing. Knowing whether he/she is hitting before, after, or exactly in sync with the beat to the millisecond allows the individual to make immediate, online corrections to improve timing and rhythm over the course of training.
Peer reviewed studies repeatedly confirm the importance of timing and rhythm for human performance. According to IM research, improving neuro-timing may result in better function in the following areas:
Expressive & Receptive Language
Rate & Fluency, Mathematics
Upper Extremity Function
(Parkinson’s, hemiplegia, CP, hand function)
Athletic Performance (golf, soccer)
Sessions can be done either by appointment, in-person in our office or remotely from home with 24/7 availability. If you are ready to begin your training, just call us at (312) 925-5176 to set up your initial appointment.
Diane’s IM Story
You’ll learn about about my own Interactive Metronome® journey from our Blog (Memory, Rhythm, Clapping: The Power of a Millisecond) and my tidy office. Yes, we love this tool and have begun collecting stories from clients.
Annie’s Story: Prior to a major shift in job and geography, she decided some brain brightening was in order. Annie wanted every advantage in approaching this new step with energy and clarity. She purchased a 15-session package and then completed it over a period of 5 weeks.

Transition and Confidence
There are certain points in life when you want to feel your best -- and then some. An artist, educator and editor, Annie was looking for brain training to improve her memory and processing before making a job transition.
What is it like to do the IM Program?
IM was challenging, but Annie gained energy, confidence, and more social ease. Her biggest takeaway was success after a nurturing and fruitful experience.
