Learn how to integrate retained primitive reflexes and help your child improve motor and social skills by implementing fun, therapeutic activities!
Primitive reflexes are reflexes that develop in the womb and children are born with. These reflexes are automatic movements, directed from the brain stem, without thought or direction. Primitive Reflexes help newborns stay safe in the brand new, scary world they are experiencing!
Primitive Reflexes should have a limited life span though. As your child grows up, these primitive reflexes should be suppressed by the higher functioning parts of the brain. However, sometimes this doesn’t happen for a variety of reasons.
When primitive reflexes aren’t naturally integrated, they become retained reflexes and issues may arise.
