Integrated Neurosensorimotor Techniques (INT) is a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approach that incorporates the concepts of osteopathic manual therapy, manual physical therapy, and neurosensorimotor integration therapy to reconnect the dysfunctional neural networks. INT is recommended for children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as learning disabilities, slow learners, ADHD/ADD, Asperger’s, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorders, and Down syndrome.
** Joining this programme requires a prior assessment and interview.
Does our brain need to exercise?
YES. Studies indicate that exercises can promote brain plasticity by stimulating new connections between cells in the cortical areas of the brain. Exercise also increases hippocampal neurogenesis, mediated by the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).
(b) How will my child benefit from this BrainEx programme? BrainEx is an individualised and specially designed exercise programme to help individuals to improve their learning and cognitive skills, memory, body coordination, attention, focus, emotional regulation, and balance through a well-structured brain exercise programme.
Rhythmic Steps is a music and movement group early intervention to help children with impairments in motor coordination, motor execution, gross and fine motor skills, auditory-motor integration, and auditory processing to improve their weaknesses through various fun musical activities. This programme incorporates the concepts of musical and rhythmic entrainment in which children learn to synchronize their movements with others through beat inductions. Rhythmic entrainment is the key to promote neuroplasticity in brain networks. The group setting of this programme also encourages children to interact, socialize, and collaborate with their peers.
What is retained primitive reflexes?
Primitive reflexes are involuntary motor responses originating in the brainstem that are present birth in early child development that facilitates survival. Retained primitive reflexes can lead to developmental delays related to disorders like ADHD, sensory processing disorder, autism and learning disabilities. (b) How can our Baby Reflexes programme help your child? Baby Reflexes programme focuses on using motor response patterns and their variants to reactivate the retained reflexes in order to reconnect the affected neurological pathways for physical, mental, emotional, and cognitive functioning.
