A baby’s brain is not fully developed at birth. During the first year of life, the baby’s brain undergoes a tremendous amount of change. They go from being a helpless newborn to being a walking and talking child. In terms of growth and maturity, the first year of life is the most important foundation for brain development.
Every human infant’s brain has the potential to develop into a healthy mature brain through movement, reflexive patterns and sensory stimulation. This is called the Developmental Sequence.
In an ideal world a baby will go through the developmental sequence and have no delays or injuries. When this is the case the brain’s potential is maximized. Unfortunately, there are many factors that can hinder neurological development. Some examples are below:
- Bonding Breaks: Adoption: At or After Birth
- Infant Neglect or Abuse, including Poor Prenatal/Infant Care
- A Minor Brain Injury or Traumatic Brain Injury
- Parental/Infant Stress
- Multiple births
- Birth Trauma – Pitocin, prematurity, time spent in the NICU
- A developmental sequence or has an injury during the early stages of brain development
- Time spent in baby swings, strollers, walkers to the exclusion of “tummy time”.
When a baby misses their developmental sequence or has an injury or delay during the early stages of brain development, often there are consequences that appear later in life. Some examples include:
- Inefficient horizontal/vertical eye tracking needed for reading
- Retained reflexes
- Difficulty potty training
- High pain tolerance
- Sensory processing disorders
- Difficulty with fine motor skills
- Poor short term memory
- Lack of Cause and Effect
- Meltdowns (going from 0-100)
- Language concerns
- Inefficiencies with balance, coordination and regulation
To help equip the brain for life, Neurolly Solutions Inc., LLC, educates about the Development Sequence and provides instruction, training and support in the NeuroDevelopmental Movement Program. This is a non-medical educational approach to equipping the brain for life. The NeuroDevelopmental Movement Program includes patterned movements, mobility, and multi-faceted sensory experiences. The program will consist of a general assessment, education, instruction and training, followed by ongoing personalized support.
The NeuroDevelopmental Movement Program includes several pathways:
- NeurollyBaby: The Developmental Sequence (DS) for infants and babies.
- NeurollyAcademy: The Replication of the Developmental Sequence (RDS) for young children and students.
- NeurollyAdults: The Replication of the Developmental Sequence (RDS) for adults of any age.
