Just like to post info about Dr Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Training that may interest some parents with children diagnosis with ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, speech and language delay, CP etc
Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Training based on the rhythmic movements that infants spontaneously do. Thanks to these, the child learns to find the body and coordination of movement. The movement also stimulates the brain so that neural connections are developed and the brain matures. This lays the foundation for the development of so-called executive functions, such as attention and impulse control, visual skills such as consensus and accommodation, and for language development.
Infant's rhythmic movements also integrate the primitive reflexes. If the infant skips stages in their development, their primitive reflexes remain active. Active reflexes may impede motor development so that the child has problems such as coordination, balance and stability. In adulthood, active reflexes cause many problems both physically and mentally.
It is a method that works with movement exercises corresponding to the infant's level. The method differs from sensor motor training primarily through its emphasis on the rhythmic elements of the movements. Kerstin Linde, who for years worked as a self-taught movement educator, originally developed the rhythmic motion exercises. Dr. Harald Blomberg followed her work for a few years in the 80's and then used the method in his work as a psychiatrist. For about 10 years ago he began a more systematic teaching, which he then supplemented by special exercises for the integration of infant reflexes.
