Neurological Integration for all children, and …..what about autism?

Getting an infant involved in the natural, neurodevelopmental sequence early in life is important for ALL infants whether or not we know they have autism or other neurodevelopmental disorders.  This helps the brain talk to and organize itself.  ALL infants need to go through this process, and the neurodevelopmentally normal child will go through all […]

What about reflexes

In response to a question about treating reflexes:   Here is my insight on how this process takes place, based on observation and study since 1987 (and prior careers as well): There is a repetitive sequence.  The tiny little organism that is a human being, even before birth, will experience a reflex, this leads to […]
