A great marker for neurological health is the existence of primitive reflexes — when any remain past the first year of life, they can hinder a child’s future development!

Retained reflexes cause symptoms or contribute to autism, dyslexia, speech disorders, sensory disorders, hyperactivity — resulting in…

…messy handwriting, poor eye-hand coordination and visual tracking, tendency to slump when sitting, walking on toes, inability to sit still and concentrate, and more!

As therapists, when we treat the causes and symptoms of motor delays, we can utilize alternate brain pathways to improve the effects of therapy.

In this in-depth certification course, you’ll get the best of both worlds…the convenience of online, self-paced learning, plus LIVE ONE-ON-ONE CONSULTATION with primitive reflex expert Karen Pryor, PhD, PT, DPT, ND, CH, CFPS.

Experience for yourself the amazing effects neuroplasticity techniques will have on alignment of eyes, trunk, and upper and lower extremities when active movements replace spastic patterns in the children you work with.

See what a difference Primitive Reflex Integration can make!
