Neuro Reflex Integration
A reflex is a reaction that happens without consciously thinking about it.
When a person jumps at a startling event, like a dog suddenly appearing and
barking, the reaction is caused by an automatic reflex. Each reflex is a
pre-programmed brain and body pattern, which develops in a specific
sequence. These are integrated as we grow from the first few weeks of
development in the womb through early childhood. These reflexes are
responsible for our survival when we are young or in perceived danger.
In an ideal world our primitive reflexes will be integrated by the time we are 3
years old. However, for some, one or more of the reflexes never became
integrated, because it may have been triggered in the wrong way or at the
wrong time, or may have developed or be responding improperly.
The reflexes help to develop the essential neural networks of the brain. Each
area of the brain needs to be sufficiently integrated and accessible for all
learning and life skills. Un-integrated reflexes can affect coordination, focus,
Learning challenges and behaviors may be rooted in a reflex that is not integrated properly.
