Primary Reflex Assessment
What is a Primary Reflex Assessment?
Dr. Leah Light conducts several Primary Reflex Assessments (PRA) each week at Brainchild Institute. The Primary Reflex Assessment has three components. The first portion is a thirty minute audiological evaluation to check the functionality of hearing. This includes otosocopy, tympanometry, audiometry, and evoked otoacoustic emissions.
The second phase of the PRA consists of an evaluation of primary motor reflex patterns (primary reflexes), vestibular function, and visual tracking and convergence. The final stage of the Primary Reflex Assessment is concluded with a thirty to forty-five minute parent conference with Dr. Light to discuss her findings and recommendations for next steps.
