      Sorry, I have not had experience treating that and I am not aware of any research that addresses that specific issue. I will open that up to the forum to see if we have an pediatric practitioners.

      Check for retained primitive reflexes ….. could have a retained Babinski Reflex which needs a brain based approach to correct
