Primitive or developmental reflexes are involuntary motor responses originating in the brainstem that are present at birth and in early childhood. For healthy children, these reflexes integrate or disappear automatically during normal development but trauma or neglect may cause some of these reflexes to be retained. In this workshop, co-presenters Leanne Liddicoat, O.D and Teri Gelgood, LMFT will explain what retained reflexes are, how they affect learning, why they resurface with trauma and how they can be addressed.
