Neuromotor Assessment with Interventions

If you are reading this, you are a conscious, intentional creature. As sentient beings, we evolved from a lineage of animals that developed complex actions without conscious awareness. Our species conscious control of action does not replace the underlying neuromotor functionality, but rather adds a layer of control over the Reflex Arcs for those actions. The efficacy of our ability to express choice (Intention) is consequently wholly dependent upon the competency of the underlying neuromotor automaticities, which conscious, intentional actions only indirectly manipulate. From Evolutionary Theory, the above statements hold not only for our species but for any creatures that evolve to self-awareness and reason.

The competency of our automaticities influence the qualities of our physical form, how we move, how we sense and process that data, how we respond (behavior), and how our thought processes interlace with the resulting experience. Competency emerges from our developmental cycle. As infants, our discovery of our hands and feet, learning to roll over, learning to prop ourselves up, learning to crawl, learning to walk, and learning to use our bodies to support our hands in fine motor skills all require the activation of automaticities described as Developmental Reflexes. Where reflexes have not had sufficient opportunity to “mature” compensations and adaptations arise as these reflexes establish the foundation of more complex actions. Identification of compensations and adaptations offers pointers for therapeutic intervention that further assists the maturation of the related automaticities. Successful therapeutic intervention initiates a global improvement in function and sometimes observable changes in structure.

This website offers a survey for evaluating the relative significance of compensations and adaptations, correlated to a specific stage of the developmental cycle, with applicable activities and therapeutic tactics for decompensating that stage. Using this tool one can isolate the discrete subset of therapies and activities that will offer the greatest benefit from the myriad available therapeutic options. Included are thematic associations that can add therapeutic benefit to client dialog. These recommendations are indexed from the top menu. The survey takes about twenty minutes and isolates the optimal therapeutic interventions from four distinct sets of therapeutic options. You can start the assessment here:
