Abstract

Use of a Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration Program to Improve Reflex Patterns of Children with Down Syndrome

A novel and non-invasive method for evaluating and improving neurodevelopmental delays in children with Down syndrome was evaluated. Changes in the reflex patterns of children (6 months to 18 years old) (n=54) with Down syndrome were used as objective measures for comparing before and after participation in a Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration exercise program. Majority number of reflex patterns showed substantial improvement after children’s completion of the exercise program, although not to the level of development comparable to that of children with typical development. This success indicates that the neurodevelopment and overall functioning of Down syndrome children is not static and can be improved with this novel Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration (NRI) exercise program. This research also show the fact that the changes in reflex patterns happen in children with mild, moderate and severe disabilities on significant level.
