After the brain stem, our brain splits up into 2 hemispheres.
When primitive reflexes aren’t suppressed, it inhibits development in sensorimotor, cognition, and executive function with a larger weakness one one hemisphere, depending on epigenetic stuff (like we talked about earlier)
When there are weaknesses in the left hemisphere, we see struggles with learning, and often end up with diagnoses like dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia, and other learning disabilities.
With weaknesses in the right hemisphere, we see things like focus, social, emotional, and behavioral problems, which often lead to a diagnoses of something like ADHD, Anxiety, ODD, Asperger’s, Autism, etc.
But don’t get too caught up on those things! So often these issues are misdiagnosed, or kids are struggling with things like visual function which can often look like dyslexia.
That’s why we always do tests and have you consult with a director before deciding which hemisphere to work on.
And check out the responsibilities of each hemisphere!
