What are Primitive Reflexes?

Reflexes are normal, involuntary movement patterns that promote motor learning and sensory integration. Most reflexes become integrated into a pattern of movement after infancy. However, sometimes, reflexes do not become easily integrated and interfere with a 'child's ability to develop an appropriate foundation for stability and mobility. A child may learn faulty and adaptive movement patterns that interfere with foundations to be successful.

Retained reflexes contribute to motor delays, sensory processing issues, behavioral problems, poor visual processing skills, poor auditory processing skills, hyperactivity, poor attention, health issues, or learning difficulties.

Why Start with the Moro Reflex?

Moro is the only primitive reflex connected to all other senses, and it is considered a building block to all the other reflexes and overall development. Because the Moro triggers the sympathetic nervous system, it affects the adrenal glands and the production of stress hormones, changing the emotional and physical state of the child.

When retained past the necessary time, the Moro puts the body in a constant fight or flight state and causes many adverse symptoms in the body.

How Do I Integrate Retained Reflexes?

To integrate the Moro reflex, take a child through the foundational movements their brain needs to integrate their retained reflexes, resulting in healthy, well-adapted movement patterns.

This course will teach you to implement practical exercises to improve a child's development in as little as 5-10 minutes a day.
