Description: This webinar is designed to provide viewers with a basic understanding of primitive reflexes/primary movement patterns, how these patterns relate to postural development and functional skills, and the importance of thinking about these patterns in the context of sensory integration treatment. As occupational therapists using a sensory integrative framework, it is important for us to recognize the influence these primarily movement patterns are potentially having on our clients and to understand how to support our clients with this additional lens.
By the end of this webinar viewers will be able to:
- Describe the link between primary movement patterns, postural development, and sensory integration.
- Identify factors that can interfere with reflex integration.
- List ways in which primary movement patterns become integrated into skilled, volitional movement.
- Identify ways to incorporate activities that support primary movement pattern integration into treatment.
