Langston Pediatric Therapy

For children needing improvement in self regulation, body awareness, and fine motor skills, Langston Pediatric Therapy employs the use of Interactive Metronome.

Interactive Metronome is an assessment and treatment tool used in therapy to improve the neurological processes of motor planning, sequencing, and processing.

The Interactive Metronome program provides a structured, goal-oriented process that challenges the patient to synchronize a range of hand and foot exercises to a precise computer-generated reference tone heard through headphones. The patient attempts to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor actions. A patented auditory-visual guidance system provides immediate feedback measured in milliseconds, and a score is provided.

We pratice this method for those children needing help with motor disorders, attention, motor planning, sequencing, bilateral coordination, and self regulation.

Children who have gone through this program have improved attention, focus, engagement, performance in school, and self-regulation.

Over the course of the treatment, your child will learn to:

  • Focus and attend for longer periods of time
  • Increase physical endurance and stamina
  • Filter out internal and external distractions
  • Improve ability to monitor mental and physical actions as they are occurring
  • Progressively improve coordinated performance.

Interactive Metronome assists with the following:

  • Central Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Sensory Integration Disorder
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Non-verbal Learning Disorder
  • Balance Disorders
