About Us


A battery of tests used to check hearing sensitivity as well as how the brain processes and interprets what it hears so that a tailored intervention program can be put into place. 

primary reflex assessment

Evaluation of early sensorimotor patterns that create the foundation of human development and affect all future aspects of learning and behavior


primary reflex INTEGRATION

Using the Masgutova Method (MNRI), we use specific techniques to help reset the brain’s early neuronal circuits and enhance overall brain functioning


Auditory Processing 

Interventions to improve listening, language comprehension, auditory memory, reading, and reading comprehension skills by strengthening specific auditory connections in the brain
