Kathleen Tehrani at Examiner.com, recently interviewed Ann Millan, author and autism advocate. Ann’s daughter, Robin, was diagnosed with autism at a time when there was little awareness or support. The family worked together to find therapies that have allowed Robin to be independent, work, drive, and own a condo. One therapy that worked well for Robin was, and still is, interactive metronome (IM) therapy. This treatment combines sounds and movements to improve language skills and response time. Millan describes IM as a whole body experience, involving feet, eyes, hands, and ears. Robin listens to specific sounds in her headphones and then responds “according to the frequency, guided sounds or visual from the computer.”
