By detecting primary reflexes that have not been integrated (or have re-emerged due to trauma/stress) we can unlock the brain's ability to connect to the body from a foundational level. This strengthens the nervous system, improves stress resilience, and induces neuroplasticity for learning.
Appropriate postural control is often under appreciated as the critical foundation for higher level mental and emotional function. When you are not fully connected to your physical body, grounded and have adequate postural stability you will not have enough bodily resources to allocate to cognition, learning, and appropriate self-regulation. It is through our physical development that sets the stage for our ability to expand our mental and emotional capabilities.
Children that can greatly benefit from this approach typically experience a variety of symptoms with self-regulation such as: Bedwetting; bowel/bladder control; learning and attention difficulties; autism spectrum behavior, dyslexia; vision challenges such as binocular function and tracking (typically show up with difficulty reading and/or hand-eye coordination); clumsiness; difficulty with handwriting; scoliosis; and/or physical pain.
