This Advanced course details what primitive reflexes (PR) are, why they re-emerge following a brain injury, how they affect sensorymotor integration and how integration techniques can be used in the treatment of brain injuries. Participants will learn how to effectively screen for the presence of PRs and how to reintegrate these reflexes to improve patient outcomes. Additionally, current research regarding PR integration and brain injuries will be highlighted and cases will be presented.
