#7326 Primitive Reflex Integration: Solidifying the Foundation in Your Pediatric Client
Primitive reflexes are assessed when a child is born to ensure they are present. Yet, they are then often dismissed, underestimating the role they play in the continued development and success of the child. However, many children continue to have retained primitive reflexes which interfere with various aspects of their development. The term Primitive Reflex Integration is being used in a variety of fields with various approaches to treatment. These approaches often present the treatment of each primitive reflex as individual movement patterns separate from each other. This course provides therapists with a roadmap to evaluating and treating 8-11 primitive reflexes, with the understanding that they are linked and build upon each other. It utilizes a functional and play-based approach to allow physical and occupational therapists to integrate this new knowledge immediately into their practice.
