We use a rehabilitation approach that follows the blue-print of brain development to ensure proper healing and progress.
We do this by using a combination of reflex integration, hemispheric integration, and physical fitness in a very intensive way in order to reach these milestones and set the kids up for great success and healing.
This process involves the repetition of stimulating specific pathways that will speed myelination and increase brain plasticity at a faster pace than doing weekly consistent therapy for 6 months.
This process will bring muscle tone strengthening, increased endurance, balance and functional skills in your child.
Here are the two main therapies utilized here at Brain Reconnection.

Reflex Integration- Reflexes are the foundation of brain development, they start in utero and continue to integrate throughout the 3rd year of life through movement.
Integrated reflexes help children reach milestones via motor development, communication, and emotional and cognitive skill development.
When reflexes are not integrated, they inhibit development of other steps which leads to other issues including but not limited to: low muscle tone, speech delay, gross and fine motor issue, attention problems, sensory sensitivity etc.
Hemispheric Integration- The brain is made up of 2 hemispheres, the right and left hemisphere. Each hemisphere has very specific functions and tasks that it is designed to complete. When one side is not equal in developmental pace to the other you begin to see hemispheric deficits. These hemispheric deficits lead to the neurological dysfunction that we see in many common developmental disorders such as ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, etc. TBI and Epilepsy can also lead to a hemispheric deficiency leading to further difficulties. We approach our therapy with a hemispheric integration background, specializing in balancing out the activity and communication of the brain hemispheres in order to reach optimal function for your child.
