Crawling for Brain Development© Curriculum Preorder


895 in stock

Crawling for Brain Development© is a 5-week, guided program designed for children and adults ages 3-100+ struggling with:

  • reading
  • writing
  • motor skills
  • coordination
  • ocular motor skills
  • timing and sequencing
  • sensory processing challenges
  • retained primitive reflexes

It will benefit individuals of all abilities, whether they crawled in infancy or not. Parents can implement the program at home, teachers in their classrooms, and therapists in their treatment sessions and home exercise programs. In 150 pages, you will learn therapist-directed activities designed to move the brain out of fight-or-flight and into a higher level of functioning! Building on the foundational skill of crawling, the program includes activities designed to promote

  • sensory processing and modulation
  • primitive reflex integration
  • ocular motor skills
  • auditory processing
  • timing and sequencing
  • bilateral coordination
  • crossing midline

The program will likely take longer than 5 weeks to complete, which is perfectly fine! The activities progress from easier to more challenging as the weeks continue. Each activity should be practiced until mastery before moving on to the next day.

Disclaimer: It is NOT a formal primitive reflex integration curriculum and does not teach reflex testing. It should not be used as a replacement for therapy or as a diagnostic tool.
