With many developmental disabilities, it can be exceedingly difficult to perform even the most basic tasks because the disability causes motor performance to suffer. That is why we use Interactive Metronome as part of our Auditory Interventions Occupational Therapy. Interactive Metronome is when a child touches some kind of trigger in time with a beat coming through headphones on a computer. There is then realtime feedback on whether the child taps before, after or during the trigger, giving invaluable insight into how to improve reaction time and motor skills.
