Many children and adults have neurological disorders, learning disabilities or cognitive challenges. Tests show these individuals have often retained reflexes or may have reoccurring neonatal / primary reflexes. These reflexes should have been inhibited earlier in life. Children can keep their primary reflexes for longer than necessary for optimal development. Neonatal reflex inhibition allows for more sophisticated neurological structures to develop and remain prevalent.
Adults can see the reoccurrence of these neonatal / developmental reflexes in many pathologies, including trauma, PTSD, Parkinson’s, stroke, dementia, etc. Retained and reoccurring reflexes can create numerous neurological dysfunctions, learning disabilities and sensory integration dysfunctions. In children, these primary reflexes can be found in learning disabilities, processing disorders / sensory integration dysfunctions, ADD/ADHD, etc.
In this class, you will use specific and efficient manual therapy techniques to inhibit these primary / infant reflexes. Some inhibitory movement patterns will also be presented.
Registrants must have taken Dr. Chikly’s “Brain 1” course.
