Knee Jerk Reactions: How Primitive Motor Reflexes Govern Development of Coordinated Movement.

  • SK Neighborhood Guild- Room 26 325 Columbia St South Kingstown, RI, 02879 United States (map)

We are born with a hard-wired set of primitive reflexes that govern the development of sensory processing and movement.  As infants learn the lesson that each reflex has to teach, another one develops to further refine coordination.  If reflexes do not get integrated into purposeful movement, individuals may experience difficulties with attention, sensory processing, coordinated movement, development of strength, and other challenges.  This workshop will review a selection of reflex patterns and their role in development, as well as a few basic developmentally-based movement patterns and rhythmic movements that can help integrate those reflexes to develop more efficient movement in children and adults!
