Primitive Reflexes

Primitive Reflexes Workshop 101

Are retained Primitive Reflexes
holding my child back?

Get to the bottom of behavior issues, developmental delays, emotional outbursts, and attention problems by building a strong foundation for your child or student so they can reach their academic potential.



Gain the skills necessary to get your child or student on the right track toward academic success. Our easy to follow workshop shows you how to watch for signs of retained primitive reflexes, how to test for them, and the exercises you can do to get the lower levels of the brain working so higher learning concepts become automatic.

“I just wanted to thank you so much for this course. I have an 11-year-old boy and 9-year-old boy who still wets the bed. I brought this up to our pediatrician over the years, but he just told me that they would grow out it. I was so tired of their room and their clothes smelling like pee. I bought jugs of white vinegar from Costco just for the laundry. Both of my boys flipped out when I did the Spinal Galant test so I believed this is what I was missing. It has now been two weeks and only one accident!!!! This is so huge from having one accident every night. I am just blown away by this information. I am so thankful to be led to your website!”

Meet the Trainer


Hi I’m Alene. More than 20 years ago I found myself on the path to help my own students find the missing pieces in their academic journey. For the longest time, I couldn’t figure out how to close the gaps. The kids were getting harder and harder. How could I possibly teach a child to read and write if they were constantly walking around the room, rocking back and forth in their chair or lying on my desk?

I soon realized the connection between retained primitive reflexes and the brain. My students simply couldn’t develop higher functioning skills (language, reading, problem solving, reasoning and critical thinking) because the lower areas of their brain, which control automatic movement, emotions and survival impulses had broken down. Hence, learning started to fail.

When I began testing my kids for retained primitive reflexes, 65-70% of all my students had one or multiple retained reflexes, and this wasn’t just for my students with learning disabilities. We are talking about normal everyday kids that are often “forgotten” in the classroom, but continue to struggle academically.

As we started working on the six most fundamental and basic retained primitive reflexes, parents began to notice an “awakening” with their kids and improvement in the classroom. Their child would no longer lie on their desk, they could copy notes from the chalkboard, sensory issues calmed down, they interacted with the teacher and with their peers, and attention improved dramatically. Although retained primitive reflexes are just one piece to the academic puzzle, it’s a huge piece!

The sad truth is, most parents, therapists and educators don’t know about primitive reflexes or how to test for them. That is why I created a simple and easy-to- use guide just for you! This course will show you the methods I have used with my students to reach the best results possible and provides additional worksheets and tools to track the child’s progress.

Remember, even if your child is seeing a professional or therapist, they cannot do it alone. They need your help! Kids typically only see professionals 2 to 3 times a week, which doesn’t provide enough time to work on these reflexes. By helping at home, you can integrate the reflexes faster and more efficiently so your therapist can help your child advance to higher levels.

If you are a therapist or professional that was like me and just can’t find the mystery to your students’ lack of improvement, this course is also for you. It can open a whole new area of progress for your students.

Now is the time to integrate these reflexes so you can bridge the gaps and ensure your child or student reaches their full academic potential.

My Promise To You

I genuinely want to see your child or student succeed, not only developmentally, but academically as well. That is my number one goal! I know if you are dedicated and incorporate these exercises into your daily routine or practice, you will see changes in your child.

However, if you are unhappy, contact us within the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.


The course is designed for you to go at your own pace. Some sections may take longer than others, but you will typically spend 20-30 minutes on a new section each day depending on the module. Some testing sections and reflex exercises take longer than others.

You will have access to the course for one year. Watch the videos and access the resource materials as many times as you like during this time period. After your year mark, the course will close. As long as you have printed or saved your training materials, you will have those forever.

We specifically geared the workshop toward parents and professionals in an effort to help both parties work together to provide the best care for their child or student. The course has simplified terms and instructions so parents don’t feel the information is too technical, yet it is still informative enough for therapists to gain the full benefit.

Currently, we do not provide any official certification for primitive reflexes exercises, but hope to offer this option in the future.

The exercises are for children and adults of all ages. That’s right, I said adults! Many people retain reflexes into adulthood if they are not integrated as children. Parents and professionals can work with children as young as three, but you can also use these exercises if you service teenagers or older age groups in your practice. There are limited ways to integrate these reflexes and only specific movements will help the child or adult improve.

Most of the testing and exercises for retained primitive reflexes are not available on Google, and if they are, they can be difficult to find or are incomplete. This course provides the exercises I have found to be most effective in my practice. Out of all the books and classes I have read or taken, this is my own tailor-made handbook and e-Course that combines all of the resources I have obtained over the years. The course’s comprehensive and detailed structure is more helpful and cost effective than anything that can be found on Google.

If you want to see real results in your child or student, you have to be 100% consistent with the exercises. Once you have started the exercises, taking a break or cutting back will slow the progress or you may see your child fall backward in some areas. The best practice is to continue exercises consistently until the reflex is fully integrated.

The course is only offered three times a year so don’t wait to enroll!
