Kokeb McDonald

I'm a pediatric occupational therapist, author, and coach with a strong passion for helping people develop into their healthiest selves.

As a mother of two wonderful children, I bring genuine care and compassion to my mission to transform occupational therapy. As the creator of the Reflex Integration Through Play method and book series, I created these resources not only because they offer fellow professionals a tool to expand their clinical reach, but also because they are empowering and reassuring tools for frustrated parents.

Join me in learning to better serve the children around us.

What Everyone Ought to Know About Primitive Reflexes!
Why Reflex Integration?
Primitive reflexes are foundational, yet involuntary movement patterns that are present at birth and become integrated or "dormant" before a child reaches 12 months of age. Most reflexes become integrated into a pattern of movement after infancy, so more mature and voluntary movements can emerge. 

When reflexes do not become integrated, they interfere with a child's ability to develop an appropriate foundation for stability and mobility. A child without integrated primitive reflexes learns faulty and maladaptive movement patterns. 

You must address retained reflexes in your client to make a lasting change and bridge the gap in their development. You, the trained therapists can observe these faulty responses by how a child reacts, behaves, and moves and address this interference in reflex integration to help the child recreate activities a typically developing child would have performed to integrate reflexes.

Reviews from Reflex Integration Through Play Coaching Participants

"Why I decided to join Kokeb’s RITP Mentoring program : 1) My clinic was growing rapidly and I needed another highly experienced OT to help train my staff and 2) We wanted help addressing reflexes through play."
Mary Kostka 
Ohana OT
"Participating in group mentorship allowed us to collaborate and work together to provide the highest quality of care related to reflex integration for our clients. Our therapists are now empowered and have an expert behind them. I’ve seen a great return on investment even in a short time. Clients who had plateaued in services are making progress again!"
