Primitive reflexes are automatic, involuntary movements essential to a baby's survival in the first few weeks of life. These reflexes are quickly inhibited as higher centers of the brain develop and voluntary responses become dominant. Primitive reflexes persisting beyond 6-12 months of life are considered abnormal.
Normal neural development shows a progressive inhibition of the primitive reflexes and progressive development of new skills such as gross motor skills, fine motor skills, crawling, walking, balance, coordination, and speech. Children have a number of ...
Treatment of Hemispheric Disorders – Our Approach
Hemispheric Integration - The stimulation and training of specific neurological pathways to encourage neuroplasticity resulting in academic and social behavioral changes.
Neurosensory - The stimulation of sensory pathways to encourage neuro-plasticity resulting in motor and cognitive changes.
Functional Biochemistry - The use of specific natural compounds that are proven to support neurological, immunological, and digestive processes.
Nutritional Counseling - The purpose is to help you implement the best diet for your child's needs based upon clinical lab results.
The child's brain has two hemispheres (the Left and Right Cortex). The corpus callosum is the structure deep in the brain that connects the right and left hemispheres of the cerebrum, coordinating the functions of the two halves. When the corpus callosum is missing due to agenesis or surgical intervention, the hemispheres operate independently. Current research indicates the makeup of all of the child's issues can be explained by a combination of unusually strong skills in one hemisphere combined with unusually ...
