Therapies in the School 23rd Annual Conference 2022 – ON DEMAND 9
Discover how the lower brain centers effect how reflexive movements influence active motion. All children are born with primitive reflexes but when there is damage or impairment within the cortex or midbrain, the reflex synergistic patterns persist. School based practitioners are ideal therapists to integrate primitive reflexes for progressing development and school success. Learn a new perspective on how to enter the CNS with sensory information to assist in rewiring around impairments for improved motor outcomes.
- Recognize the role reflexes play in normal development related to the functional activities in children.
- Identify how retained reflexes can impact a student’s ability to participate in school activities.
- Apply an intervention to alter tonal patterns to promote controlled voluntary motion during school activities.
