Properly functioning reflexes serve both protective and developmental roles. If not corrected, a dysfunctional reflex in infancy can take the place of a healthy, integrated motor system possibly resulting in an inability to self-regulate behavioral or emotional responses. Furthermore, an integrated reflex is supposed to help build the skills necessary for academic achievement and successful social functioning.
The broad, holistic strategies of neuro-reflex integration enable it to treat general debilitation caused by both congenital issues or emotional or physical trauma relating to:
automatic motor scheme maturation in infants
learned motor skills (fine and gross)
learned motor planning development

social skills (emotional and behavioral regulation)
