Reflex Integration

In addition to serving the North Royalton and Beachwood areas, we also provide neuro-developmental testing to our out-of-state and international clients as well. Neuro-developmental testing allows us to evaluate primitive reflex activity, which is the basis for sensory, motor, and cognitive development. Skills such as sensing, perceiving, listening, talking, playing, riding a bike, drawing, reading, writing, catching a ball and maintaining balance are all dependent on a well-integrated reflex system. Primitive reflexes that are retained past the age of integration are known to inhibit visual development and cause learning difficulties.

Vision and Retained Reflexes

Research shows that retained Primitive Reflexes are associated with the following visual symptoms:

  • Hypersensitivity to sensory input such as sound, light, touch, & taste
  • Distractibility and poor adaptability
  • Poor balance & coordination
  • Oculo-motor & visual delays
  • Poor eye control
  • Accommodative dysfunction
  • Reversals & poor writing
  • Difficulty sequencing & organizing
  • Poor binocularity
  • Motion sickness
  • Fear of heights
  • Inability to sit still
  • Attention difficulties
  • Poor concentration & memory
  • Bed wetting
  • Poor bilateral integration & dominance development
  • Difficulty with moving across midline
  • Difficulty reading
  • Perceptual difficulties
