I soon realized the connection between retained primitive reflexes and the brain. My students simply couldn’t develop higher functioning skills (reasoning, reading, language, problem solving and critical thinking) because the lower systems of their brain controlling 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.
