Primitive Reflexes Workshop

7:00pm 8th May, 2024

Unlocking Learning Potential Through Movement and Brain-Based Strategies

If your child has retained Primitive Reflexes, they work harder than they should!

Dive Deeper into Primitive Reflexes and Their Influence on Your Child

Is your child's development on track? Many factors contribute to a child's journey; sometimes, primitive reflexes can play a surprising yet pivotal role.

Move beyond the Building Blocks!

Our Primitive Reflexes workshop delves into the fascinating world of primitive reflexes – those essential movements present at birth that, with optimal development, integrate and pave the way for future brain development.

Explore why these reflexes are essential in infancy, how they work in the brain, and how they are supposed to mature and integrate. Research continues to evolve, helping us understand that if Primitive Reflexes remain retained beyond their natural timeframe, they can influence your child's:

- Learning: Focus, attention, and processing information
- Movement: Coordination, balance, and motor skills
- Behaviour: Emotional regulation, social interaction, and self-awareness

This makes learning, developing and engaging in their world harder than it should be!
