Special Class Information: 
  • This class will address retained and reoccurring neonatal and general reflexes in children and adults.

    You probably don’t know that when Dr Chikly met Alaya, almost 25 years ago, he was already working and teaching workshops on neurological development. Knowledge and circumstances have come together along with the advancement of brain techniques and it is time for Dr Chikly to teach this class. 


    Many children and adults have neurological disorders, learning disabilities or cognitive challenges. It has been found that those being tested have often retained reflexes or may have reoccurring neonatal / primary reflexes.

    These reflexes should have been inhibited earlier in life. Children can keep their primary reflexes for longer than necessary for optimal development.

    Neonatal reflex inhibition allows for more sophisticated neurological structures to develop and remain prevalent.


    Adults can see the reoccurrence of these neonatal / developmental reflexes in many pathologies, including trauma, PTSD, Parkinson’s, stroke, dementia, etc.

    Retained and reoccurring reflexes can create numerous neurological dysfunctions, learning disabilities and sensory integration dysfunctions.


    In children, these primary reflexes can be found in learning disabilities, processing disorders / sensory integration dysfunctions, trauma, PTSD, cerebral palsy, ADD/ ADHD, problems with focus and concentration, vestibular integration issues, balance issues, poor postural control, social skills issues, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia / developmental coordination disorders, speech development disorders, speech language delays, auditory and visual processing, autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome (trisomy), etc.


    There are approximately 28 neonatal reflexes at birth. We will go over most a lot of these reflexes and more, including Fear Paralysis Reflex (FPR), Moro Reflex, Palmar Reflex, Tonic Labyrinthine Reflex (TLR) forward and backward, Asymmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex (ATNR), Spinal Galant Reflex, Pereze / Pulgar Marx Reflex, Rooting Reflex, Babkin Palmo-Mental Reflex, Crossed extension Reflex, Babinsky Reflex, Landau Reflex, Symmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex (STNR), Amphibian Reflex, Parachute Reflex, etc.


    In this class you will use specific and efficient manual therapy techniques to inhibit these primary / infant reflexes. Some inhibitory movement patterns will also be presented.
