There are Options. There are Methods and Corrective Measures.
The Mulhall Integration Programme is an astoundingly powerful treatment that kick-starts the developmental process and allows us to catch up with – and in many cases overtake – our peers. This unique programme has been developed over the past 22 years. We have treated more than 2000 clients. Through experience we have adapted certain neural stimulation techniques and added other elements of our own, in response to the needs and successful outcomes that we have observed over the years. We tailor-make each programme to the individual, since everyone we see has their own issues relating to different retained reflexes. Everyone is seen personally to ensure continuity of treatment.
Once diagnosed and assessed, you are given a treatment plan, which is generally carried out at home, fitting in around your day. It’s not a quick fix – it requires effort and commitment and for some, a small leap of faith. We normally continue treatment for about 1 year, depending on the degree of developmental delay and how the individual responds. Sometimes this can continue for 18 months or longer. Each case is individual and our programmes are all personally tailored. The aim is to ensure that all the reflexes have fallen away and that new neural pathways are established, allowing a return to normal developmental progress. So don’t expect instant results – although many parents do notice quite dramatic improvements in the first month or two.

Why Choose MIP?
Because it works and once completed, the benefits remain for life, with no chance of regression. We believe it is more effective in getting to the root of neuro-developmental delay and its associated learning difficulties, than any other treatment.
There are two main differences between MIP and other programmes designed to help developmental delay:
- We recognise the retention of fetal reflexes, which we believe are significant in hindering childhood development. Other programmes focus on primitive reflexes and cerebellum function.
- Other programmes consider the root cause to be delayed development of the cerebellum, the brain’s motor skills centre, which is in charge of the postural (adult) reflexes. But that overlooks the real root of the matter. The reason for cerebellar developmental delay is the persistence of early reflexes. There are several programmes around, some of them very expensive, which require clients to recapitulate various babyhood movements such as crawling, in order to create the neural connections that will improve cerebellum function. However, such treatments don’t eliminate the reflexes, which means that neural patterning may subsequently return to its immature pre-treatment state. Neuro-physiological development begins during pregnancy in the womb and in our opinion, it is therefore absolutely crucial to be able to access the earliest stages of the developmental process to ensure a successful outcome. MIP is the only programme that eliminates fetal reflexes as well as primitive and infant reflexes, so that there is no chance of regression when treatment has ended.
