What are Primitive Reflexes?
Primitive Reflexes are automatic stereotyped movements directed from the brainstem. We don't think about them, we don't try to make them, they just happen. We need them when we are babies but after that - they don't serve us well in education, posture, or coordination activities. In fact, they become a real pain and cause Neuromotor Immaturity. This is a hindrance to children because they don't actually have full and automatic control over their body - and we all need our body to make sense of learning and process information. Many children with learning disorders such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum, and Non-Specific Learning Difficulties as well as other neuro-developmental disorders are known to have retained primitive reflexes which contribute to their issues. We can ensure these reflexes no longer have any impact on your child's education, learning and development. By using the INPP movement programme we can help to develop the needed postural reflexes and the mature body/brain pathways that your child needs to succeed. We believe in releasing children's fullest potential and we do that through movement and music.
Often children with handwriting, reading, spelling and other behavioural issues will have underlying reflex problems. These have gone undiagnosed and unknown for too long. When primitive reflexes are put to sleep our children can finally use their cortex (or big thinking brain) to focus on the content the teacher and parent are trying to tell them - and learn, rather than focusing on keeping their bodies under control and remembering the information. Whether you are a parent of a child who is struggling or a teacher who wants to maximise the learning environment and curriculum for your children we can help you.

This time in our country is unprecedented with the onset of the pandemic COVID-19. Never before have families been told to work at home, stay home, and to avoid social gatherings.

A natural reality in life is that each plant bears its own seed. Pumpkin will grow a pumpkin, a peach tree a peach tree. Unless there is purposeful and intentional intervention then nature will ensure like replicates like. A lettuce is not suddenly going to sprout a tomato! This is a comforting and secure truth,…
Assessing Neuro Motor Readiness for Learning The joys and excitement of a child turning five is celebrated as a rite of passage.

Giggles and laughter are heard as children run through the playgroup at their local early childhood centre. The jovial noise brings light to the teacher’s eyes and knowing smiles on their faces. The game of chase is progressing, yet there is that one child – the one who doesn’t quite seem to know his body. …
