We believe that Retained Reflex Syndrome may affect 75% of the UK population. It doesn’t mean we all display behavioural problems, as most of us learn to compensate and mask our difficulties. But the profound psychological impact of living with these reflexes cannot be underestimated. Under stress, and as we get older, it can get more and more difficult to keep our volatile emotions under control.
In today’s world, how well we function – physically, academically, socially and emotionally – defines who we are, what we are, and what we will be in the future.
Some of us are lucky. We jump the hurdles and pass the milestones with relative ease. Others have the intelligence and try really hard, yet it simply doesn’t turn out right and they can’t understand why.
Understanding why, is important because it gives you the opportunity to do something about it. For many people the “why” is developmental delay due to Retained Reflex Syndrome.
