Our two step Neurodevelopmental Screening relates to broad behavioural indicators. It is a baseline for schools.
It has been in clinical use as a free checklist available to parents for more than 16 years. Depending on their infant reflex profile, each child can show different combinations of features in their behaviour pattern.
- It doesn’t require a trained professional to administer it for it to be useful.
- It’s helpful as a quick way to use behavioural indicators to identify children who are at risk.
- It provides indicators that can be observed to show progress in children taking part in EBO for Schools.
- It’s free.
- It can’t be considered diagnostic.
- It’s based on common areas of concern relating to the different infant reflexes. Neurodevelopmental issues impact on brain function and are many and various, so it cannot replace a detailed assessment.
- A physical reflex assessment is required to determine the infant reflexes involved, their severity and relative interaction to build a reflex profile.
You may wish to use the screening for:
- Individual children
- A class or group – Use your class/group list to record the number or details of indicators for each child.
- As a simple baseline for assessment and re-assessment for the EBO for Schools program.
A simple, easy to use assessment method is available in the EBO for Schools program relating to the Key Reflexes addressed.
