Neurodevelopmental Screening

Our Neurodevelopmental Screening relates to broad behavioural indicators.

It has been in clinical use as a free checklist available to parents for almost 20 years. Depending on their infant reflex profile, each child can show different combinations of features in their behaviour pattern.

Benefits

  • 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.

Disadvantages

  • 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:

  1. Individual children
  2. A class or group – Use your class/group list to record the number or details of indicators for each child.
  3. 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.
