Primitive reflexes emerge in utero and should be integrated no later than 2 years of age. Unfortunately, studies show that approximately 75% of school-aged children with learning disabilities have retained primitive reflexes, which are becoming more common and strongly impact the function of these students. This 2-hour course provides occupational therapists with a screening process to identify each of these retained primitive reflexes: MORO, Tonic Labyrinthine Neck Reflex, Asymmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex, Spinal Galant, and Symmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex. Kim also provides compensation techniques and treatment strategies to help integrate each reflex covered.
- Explain the screening process for each primitive reflex.
- Provide several compensation techniques for retained reflexes in the classroom.
- Identify a treatment exercise for each of the retained reflexes.
- List programs that are available to therapists, teachers, and parents that promote the integration of primitive reflexes.
