Retained Reflexes and treatment thereof

(2 Posts)

My son has all kinds of issues that the school say add up to ADHD type symptoms.(concentration/fidgeting/distracted/dyspraxia etc etc). I took him for a private assessment and they said he had retained primitive reflexes which can explain a lot of these symptoms. I have since done some independent research and the science is valid (peer reviewed studies etc).
HOWEVER - what I cannot find any evidence for, is if any of the treatment programmes offered by these clinics (at significant cost) genuinely work, or if they are just selling snake oil to parents who will try anything to help their children. Any personal experience or knowledge welcomed. Thanks

We have had good results with retained reflexes through therapy, but not with adhd. Feel free to PM me for more info. Did therapy from age 10-11.5
