Our care for children is specifically focused on guiding Parents/Caregivers on a home program of exercises which targets the development and integration of Primary Infant Reflexes using the Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration methods (MNRI®).
When a reflex has not integrated properly a number of challenges can be present such as Autism, Developmental Delays, Learning Challenges and Delays (such as Reading and Writing difficulties), ADD/ADHD, Speech and Language Delays, Vision and Hearing Challenges, Poor Muscle Tone Regulation, Poor Fine/Gross Motor Coordination, Poor Bladder Control (potty training), Breathing difficulties and Emotional/Behavioral challenges such as extreme shyness, lack of confidence and anxiety.
Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration for your child is a hands-on treatment which can be taught to parents/caregivers as a comprehensive home program of exercises designed to help integrate a child’s developmental reflexes as well as help adults or children who are stuck in survival and protection from trauma.
In order to support the home program, you will need to purchase The Parents Guide to MNRI which can be found on the MNRI website: www.masgutovamethod.com. The manual can be found under ‘shop’ for $45.00. Please have this book with you before your SECOND treatment session.
- The first visit will include an assessment of your child’s Developmental Reflexes. This is the only assessment performed. No other standardized OT evaluations are done. Some simple exercises will be demonstrated to begin your home program.
- You will be given further instruction on your home program over 3-6 visits. Ideally, appointments will be scheduled once a week or every other week for the these visits based on your child’s needs.
- Because I have a small office with an unsupervised waiting room, PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR OTHER CHILDREN WITH YOU. Your full attention will be needed while I am working with you and your child while you are learning the home program.
- Have your child wear loose comfortable clothing that allows his/her body to move without restriction. Please, no dresses, skirts or tight jeans.
- If your child is not able to lie on a treatment table easily without distraction, it is okay to bring a toy or a favorite book to make him/her feel more comfortable and be able to tolerate lying on a table for almost an hour. Snacks are okay as long as they are NUT FREE and not too messy.
