Hemispheres Pyramid of Development and Learning

Hemispheres Pyramid of Development and Learning

The Primitive and Postural reflexes play an important role in the development of the Central Nervous System (CNS), they produce nonvolitional movements which are the precursor to the development of voluntary movements in a young child. The motor milestones of childhood such as rolling, crawling and walking occur due to the accumulative interaction of many different reflexes which forms a continuously developing systems  internal and external to the body (Horak,1992). A young child's CNS system is highly flexible and responsive to interactions between the physical self and the environment which it interact with, therefore movement and motor control develops as part of a dynamic interaction, it develops unevenly with a child improving, regressing and improving again (Horak, 1992).
