While oral-motor treatment approaches for neurologically impaired children have focused on severe feeding dysfunction, recent clinical work with children who have sensory processing/developmental dysfunction has revealed a strong association between subtle oralmotor and respiratory dysfunction and many sensory integrative and sensory motor problems. A framework for understanding how and why many aspects of development are significantly influenced by oral functions will be presented. 


MNRI (R) is a comprehensive set of programs that focus on motor reflex and sensory system integration.  The primary focus of the MNRI Method is to support the integration process of primary motor reflex patterns regardless of a person's condition or age.
