Registration includes access to all three sessions and handouts. Primitive reflex integration is a term being used in a variety of fields resulting in various approaches to treatment. This course provides therapists with a clear understanding of evaluating and treating primitive reflexes. It focuses on understanding the neuroanatomy of primitive reflexes, supporting research, and the importance of analyzing posture, biomechanics, and qualitative movement patterns. Several primitive reflex programs take a rote approach providing a “cookie-cutter” recipe to address each reflex individually. This class begins with understanding the neuroanatomy of the primitive reflexes and how they apply to natural development. It looks at the research and integrates occupational and physical therapy theories (Rood, Bobath, Brunnstrom, NDT) as these all play a large role in the understanding of the primitive reflexes. It teaches clinicians to assess the child’s posture and movement patterns as this is a vital key to integrating reflexes because a child cannot integrate if the posture is holding onto particular patterns of movement to allow for safety and stability. It then goes on to teach the reflexes in groups and patterns as they work together fluidly to promote function.
