The “Connecting the Dots on Reflex Integration” Course Series
All you need to know about assessing and treating reflex integration issues.
About this Course Series
Like a houseguest who outstays their welcome, primitive reflexes that haven’t been integrated can cause trouble. More than that: they can disrupt every aspect of our daily lives.
Unintegrated reflexes can wreak havoc on our children’s physical, emotional, social and academic function.
Issues presenting as:
- Reading comprehension difficulties
- Irritability and snappiness
- Confusing left and right
- Getting dizzy or queasy easily
- Inability to avoid arms and legs bumping people in close proximity
- And too many more to list here
…can all be caused by retained reflexes or have a reflex component.
But there’s plenty of information out there on primitive reflexes. Why do you need this course series?
Because it doesn’t matter how competent you are as a therapist. If you have only an approximate idea of what’s wrong, your treatment will only “approximately” help.
If your diagnosis hits the nail on the head, however, treatment can get right to the point. Your ability to bring relief to the children you love and work with is increased a hundredfold.
The goal of the “Connecting the Dots on Reflex Integration” course series is for you to identify and treat the social, emotional, behavioral and academic challenges caused by retained primitive reflexes - with laser-like precision.
You will learn how to:
- identify the reflexes that are likely to be involved in any given case
- provide interim compensations to relieve acute issues
- perform detailed assessments
- design evidence-based treatment plans
- track progress over the course of treatment
This is the course series that will bring you the treatment results you’ve long wanted but that always seemed out of reach. Here you’ll master the advanced knowledge, critical evaluation skills and practical techniques that will empower you to help children reach their potential.
