Autism and the Moro Reflex - Research and Intervention 
November 26,2013  

This week's article concerns research on the Moro reflex.

 

The author is Svea Gold who has been working in this area, and more specifically with Autism and related brain anomalies. After you finish the article, you may want to know how to improve the Moro Reflex - the Starfish Module DVD and Workbook are on sale this month and can be found at http://www.pyramidofpotential.com/products-for-parents/. Hurry! The sale ends when my inventory runs out!

 

The Moro Reflex: When Is It Normal?

 

Different ways of looking at the Moro Reflex, how it works and how to fix it if it's still there. The Moro Reflex is the reflexive action of a baby to unpleasant sudden changes in light, posture, sound, etc. By Svea Gold

 

I promised to talk about the Moro and Kandel. Kandel of course only tried to find out exactly what happens at the nerve cell. Nothing more. In the process, he proved that what we have been doing with exercises actually works. For years, and even today, nobody wants to believe it. By repeatedly stimulating a connection you can increase connections between two or more nerve cells.


To satisfy a grant, scientists have to do things a little bit at a time in order to be able to prove whatever they are trying to prove. Unfortunately, their research does not get integrated with whatever others are doing (that has been my job).

The next step in proving how a motor program works comes from the research in Netrins and now with other nerve growth factors, done at the Salk Institute by Samuel Pfaff, He showed that it takes the nerve growth factors created by the brain itself and the nerve growth factors created by the muscles to make connections for the brain and body to function.

All this research backs up Sally Goddard's work on reflexes.

A reflex is not just some nasty little ogre that sits there to frustrate a child. It is an indication of how the brain functions: which circuits are working in the brain at that particular moment. Reflexes - loops in the brain circuits-develop as soon as...

Here is a testimonial I received from a parent that I want to share with you:

 

"On Thursday, Susan's teacher called me. Of course, as I saw the caller ID I braced myself and answered the phone. She called to tell me that Susan had the best week ever with her. (Susan's been in this classroom for most of 4th grade and all of this year). She went to 3 assemblies and walked right in and sat with her class. She has NEVER sat with her class. Recently she stood just inside the door but usually she is in the hallway crying with her hands over her ears, sweaty palms and terrified. They are doing long division with remainders this week. She is picking it right up. (She is pretty good at math but it usually takes a bit for her to get the concepts and then she retains them. More impressive to me is that she only likes nice even numbers. In the past remainders would not be tolerated, there would be a tantrum over this gray area!)

 

To me the best part was she has seen Susan interacting with her peers and joining in conversations (never before).  

That night she came home and wanted to decorate for Easter (never really cared about decorating). Today she told me a little bit about kids at school with no prompting. She is sleeping less and kind of giddy at night. Physically, she seems to be using her hands more without giving up, removing tape from a package and opening things."

 

6 months later, I received the following update:

 

"Thought I'd update you on Susan. She made high honor roll first quarter and just made honor roll this quarter in the 6th grade. We finished the reflex integration and we are now in the middle of our second iLs program. Socially she is about the same but, she is asking more relevant questions and articulating her thoughts better."
