Are there things that parents of toddlers and young children should be doing to help integrate reflexes?
The short answer is give them opportunities to really move. Whether that’s tummy time for toddlers or running, and jumping for young children. Let them explore how their bodies work. Movement has such a profound impact on learning, and is just as impactful as educational games on iPads and other devices.
Other questions, and more, in the Bonus Q&A:
- What’s the timeframe for seeing results with QRI?
