pediatric milestones, reflexes, and neurological development

Reflexes appear within the first year of life. They should disappear as the child's brain learns to control the skill voluntarily. Many kids (and adults) have "retained" reflexes, which means that the foundation for their nervous system is underdeveloped. This can lead to many problems like poor posture and coordination, ADHD and learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and even more complex challenges like immune problems, motor tics, trouble sleeping, bed wetting, and symptoms that mimic Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
