Certain behaviours that we see in children can be evidence of physical problems that are affecting them and their ability to learn.
A lot of different factors are involved in creating the behaviours. A full assessment is the only way to determine what’s really going on. If you do recognise any of the behaviours listed below and you’d like to come and talk with us get in touch by email or call 9835 4030.

Adults with retained reflexes are more prone to emotional disturbances and conditions like agoraphobia, car sickness and claustrophobia.
Why retained reflexes make such an impact
Here’s an example to show how retained reflexes affect us. Take the Moro reflex, the startle reflex. If this is still active you’ll get adrenalin rushes, in response to small things such as loud sounds. All this adrenalin rushing through the body on such a regular basis creates an unbalanced physical and emotional state. It’s easy to see how this could cause problems with learning and behaviour.
