Interactive Metronome: A Brain- Based Approach for ADHD and LD

Donna Abler, a holistic occupational therapist, is accepting summer registrations to help children overcome motor, behavioral and cognitive challenges associated with attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and learning disabilities (LD) through a natural, drug-free approach. Developed in the early 1990s, Interactive Metronome (IM) is a computerized, brain-based therapy tool that has gained national attention as a breakthrough intervention to support processing abilities in the brain, including language, motor and cognition skills. Its effectiveness is backed by clinical research.

“I am excited about the significant and measurable progress achieved through IM for children with ADHD and learning challenges,” comments Abler, a certified IM provider who has worked with variously diagnosed children for more than 25 years. Abler integrates years of experience in neurodevelopment, sensory integration and complementary therapy with IM.

Clients perform individualized exercises in coordination with a computer-generated beat, while receiving auditory and visual feedback. This strengthens the neural networks in the brain to make transmission of information between areas of the brain faster and more accurate, resulting in improved motor coordination, improved academic performance and increased confidence.


Location: Center for Well Being, N47W28270 Lynndale Rd., Pewaukee. For more information, call 262-370-2757 or visit DonnaAbler.com.
