What is NeuroDevelopmental Movement?





The foundational levels of the brain are responsible for setting the stage for every human being to regulate, balance and coordinate emotions, behaviors, physical structures, external/internal sensations, proprioception, impulse control, attention, focus, fight-flight-freeze, bonding/attachment, social skills, language function, gross/fine motor skills and overall brain function later in life.

The NeuroDevelopmental Movement Program is based on the the Developmental Sequence (DS) which is what every human infant needs to facilitate the maturity of the lower levels of the brain. It is comprised of movement, reflex patterns, sensory, vestibulars and related activities.

Our Developmental Consultants educate and train clients about the NeuroDevelopmental Movement Program which includes two pathways: the Developmental Sequence (DS) or the Replication of the Developmental Sequence (RDS).

Who is the NeuroDevelopmental Movement Program for?

DS Infant/Baby Program

The DS is specifically geared for infants and babies who are not yet walking. The goal of the DS program is to equip caregivers with the tools needed to set the stage for their infants/babies to have equal opportunity and access to optimal brain development. Our DS program gives babies the opportunity to move, grow, learn and achieve!

RDS Child/Adult Program

The RDS is designed for toddlers, preschoolers, students and adults. The goal of the RDS program is to give a person of any age a second chance to achieve optimal brain development, thus optimizing their life potential. RDS is based on the science of neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning, life experiences, or following injury. Our RDS program gives a person of any age the opportunity to move, grow, learn and achieve!

Labels, Limitations and Loss

The NSI, The NeuroDevelopmental Movement Program, and its affiliates do not treat labels but many of our clients have come to us with diagnoses such as

  • ADD

  • ADHD

  • ASD

  • OCD

  • ODD

  • Developmental Delay

  • GDD

  • CP

  • LD

  • Bipolar,

  • Schizophrenia

  • PTSD

  • RAD and more

Many of our clients have also had limitations such as

  • Academic struggles

  • Aggression, rages, meltdowns

  • Forgetfulness

  • Social Skills

  • Sound sensitivities

  • Lack of empathy

  • Tactile sensitivities

  • Speech delays

  • Eating disorders

  • Fine or gross motor skills

  • Depression

  • Anxiety and more 

Others have had loss of function through traumatic events such as

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Stroke

  • Bonding breaks (orphanage care, foster care and/or adoption)

  • Birth trauma and more

As a result of learning about and implementing NeuroDevelopmental Movement, many of our clients report an improved quality of life in a variety of areas such as social/emotional/behavioral regulation, mental/academic/executive function, physical strength, balance, coordination, sensory and reflex integration, even though not all of our Developmental Movement Consultants are physicians, psychologists, or credentialed mental health workers. Our consultation services do not include the treatment or diagnosis of specific illnesses or disorders.

Our consultants believe there is life beyond labels, limitations and loss.

What Is My Investment?

Neurodevelopmental Movement provides solutions, not compensations. You will not learn “quick fix” compensations in this program. You will learn what may be the root cause of issues, and how you can correct them. This work is comprehensive and individualized.  This program takes time and is challenging, requiring dedicated, daily consistent work, but as with all things worthwhile, the results are more than worth it. You can put the time in now or you can put the time in forever.
