The MNRI® Family Educational Conference is open for any child, adolescent and adult that requires therapy.
While MNRI® can and has been used as part of a wellness or performance optimization program, it is more commonly sought out and used for people facing far greater challenges, often characterized by a broad range of labels and diagnoses.
The human body’s ability to adapt in the face of challenges is truly amazing. If neurosensorimotor pathways are blocked, the body will attempt to find alternate compensating neural paths to achieve its motor program goals.
However, when the body is left to its own accord, the primary motor reflexes relating to the blocked neural pathways will remain in a role of protection, compromising the subordinate role the reflex serves in more complex patterns, schemes, learned skills and advanced motor, communication, and cognitive development; resulting in symptoms that can lead to one or a combination of DSM IV diagnoses, including among many others:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Executive Function Disorder
- Down Syndrome
- Eating disorders
- Speech delay
- Emotionally Disturbed
- Learning Disability
- ADHD (Inattentive, Hyperactive or Combined type)
- Oppositional Defiance Disorder
- Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
By addressing the underlying dysfunction, the Masgutova Method seeks to help the CP child/adult improve his motor dysfunctions, the autistic child/adult improve relational and socialization issues, and the ADHD child/adult improve his planning, relational, generalization, and socialization issues by addressing the unique combination of primary motor reflexes that signal specific neurosensorimotor dysfunction.This is why the Masgutova community is broad and diverse. As one of the truly holistic approaches, the Masgutova Method can help anyone who is faced with a challenge despite the level of function, dysfunction or pathology that exists.
