Using the COVD quality of life checklist, when is a bino dysfunction suspected?
If score is over 20
For kids using the CISS, when is CI likely?

What is the Moro reflex?
What may occur if the Moro reflex is retained?
Edge of fight/flight all the time
Motion sickness, poor balance/coordination
Poor pupil reaction to light
Hypersensitivity to sounds
What is the Tonic Labrynthine reflex? (TLR)
Helps baby to straighten out during birth
What may happen if the TLR is retained?
Head movement alters muscle tone
Gravitational insecurity - poor balance

What is the Spinal Galant Reflex?
Stimulation of side of spine results in flexion toward side of the stimulus

Poor short term memory
Hip rotation when walking
What is the Asymmetric Tonic Neck Reflex (ATNR)?
Movement of head to one side causes extension of that arm and leg, and flexion of the other limbs
What problems arise if ATNR is retained?
Interferes with crawling/creeping
No dominant hand

What is the Symmetric Tonic Neck Reflex (STNR)?
Flexion of the head causes arms to bend and legs to extend
(Downward dog, vs up dog)

What may arise if the STNR is retained?
Poor posture - slumping
W leg position when sitting on the floor
Difficulty with readjustment of bino vision; changing focus from far to near
Which reflex, if retained, has an adverse effect on tracking?
Which reflex, if retained, has an adverse effect on convergence?
