SKILL UP – Understanding the Early Reflex Patterns and Their Role in Social, Emotional and Academic Development – Hannah Jackson
October 29, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Each developmental stage plays an important role in our physical and brain development. During the first seven years of a child’s life, the child goes through necessary milestones. When done in a way that completes the stages of development, these milestones or gateways create the foundation for unencumbered learning. Hindrances in these developmental milestones can contribute to anxiety, depression, ADD, ADHD, autism, learning challenges, developmental delays, sensory integration disorders, vision and hearing problems, behavior challenges, lack of confidence, and constant feelings of being overwhelmed. Earlier movements help free our bodies and ready them for more complex movements and tasks.
In this talk, you will gain an understanding of the early reflexes and leave with tools, exercises and activities to further support your child/student.
