MNRI® in Theory

The MNRI® program is frequently called the “missing link” by professionals from around the world. MNRI® introduces the concept of reflexes as not only protective responses to stress and danger, but also the neurophysiological foundation for higher level physical, emotional and cognitive development. This concept opens new directions for research and discovery about the relationship between primary motor developmental and physical, emotional and cognitive skills. The key element in MNRI® is the understanding of a reflex as genetic motor code and unit for both primary and conscious motor system development.

MNRI® in Practice

MNRI® techniques are designed to restore neuro-sensory-motor development; to integrate primary movements, reflexes, coordination systems, and skills; and to enable optimal functioning, development, and learning. They activate innate reflex patterns; develop sensory-motor systems; improve sensory processing, movement skill, and cognitive abilities; and promote emotional growth. MNRI® also enhances motor skills and cognitive abilities in highly functioning individuals. This approach promotes joyful learning in children and adults as they improve their neuro-sensory-motor skills.

Research and observation in MNRI® have shown that the use of primary movements and reflex integration can awaken self-regulation of the sensory, motor, and proprioceptive systems that influence health, learning, and development. In individual sessions with trained professionals and in residential family educational  conferences, MNRI® programs have promoted neuro-sensory-motor development and improved motor, emotional, and cognitive function in children and adults with: LD, ADD, ADHD, PDD, PDDNOS, OCT, apraxia, Asperger syndrome, autism, Down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, ODD, emotional disturbance, sensory processing disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, cerebral palsy, genetic disorders, brain stroke, and others.
