“We were quite anxious about our son returning to school as at the end of last term things were going really badly (increased anxiety, regressions, secondary behaviours etc.) Reports so far though have been good, he has been more focused and engaged in tasks (which he was not previously doing!). I have certainly noticed an improvement in his fine motor skills (can now buckle his seat belt which is something he has been struggling with for a reeeeeeeally long time!!) and improvements in his language and attention. I’m definitely attributing that to the program, we have been engaged in therapies for a long time now and this is the quickest, notable response he has had which is awesome to see .”

A note about our personal experience with Kara and her Online Program.

I can’t thank Kara enough for all of her help and individualized advice over the past 3 months.  My daughter was diagnosed with a Neurodevelopmental disorder (Dup15q) earlier this year.  Clinical features of this disorder are variable and may include global developmental delay, ataxia, intellectual deficits, autism, hypotonia, behavioral problems. Finding out this news about our 18 month old and not knowing what the future holds, I knew we had to act fast in creating a support circle to help her reach her full potential. We were told reflex integration programs would aid with her struggles and help build a better brain/body connection which is exactly what we needed and exactly what Kara offered us through her Primitive Reflex and Brain Integrations Program with her private phone consults.

My daughter started the program at 20 months old and she was not walking, just pulling herself up to stand and cruising with significant balance and coordination struggles.   She is now 23 months and *WOW* we have seen so many gains in the past 3 months – she is walking everywhere!!! Monumental improvements in her balance, coordination, stability. She is motor planning, pivoting, squatting, bouncing, traveling barefoot and with shoes from multiple different sensory surfaces. We are thrilled with the gains and continue to see positive results across multiple areas as the weeks progress. We stuck to the program at least 5x/ week and as our daughter is so young and unable to follow instruction, we performed all the movements passively. Kara was able to give us helpful tips and modifications for more complex movements.

Kara’s OT expertise combined with her extensive experience and vast amount of research knowledge makes her an amazing therapist with a keen perspective on working the foundation to attain optimal results through neurological based movements – ultimately enabling children to reach success in many ways! In my opinion, it’s extremely hard to find a therapist with such a specialized skill set!

We are so grateful for our experience and highly recommend Brain Connex. Kara and her program have become an invaluable resource to us. I especially love her functional approach and using the child’s symptoms to fuel the movements and plan a program individualized to their needs. We look forward to continuing the work and watching our little one grow and reach new milestones! Beyond thankful!!!

From one special needs mama to another … I am happy to have found you and I THANK YOU🙏🏻💚


“I would like to report that I feel like my son is a little more calm than normal after just 2 weeks of doing the exercises. I couldn’t be happier! He used to have 2 volumes, whisper and shout. He no longer shouts and talks in a normal calm voice. I even asked my husband about it this morning and he agreed. He had his first Tball practice tonight and he listened very well and was able to hit the ball a little better (I think his hand eye coordination is improving).”

— Parent with a 5 year old child doing our Online Primitive Reflex & Brain Integrations Program for just two weeks.

UPDATE after four weeks Mom noted:

“1.My son had his 5 year well child check-up last week and for the first time in 4 years he stepped on the scale for his weight and stood nice for his height to be measured! Previously he would refuse and act silly. Huge win!
2. Prior to starting reflex integration he couldn’t pedal a bike. Tonight I took him out and he pedaled perfectly! I was shocked and so happy! I made sure my husband hadn’t worked with him in between at all.
3. We hadn’t  used scissors or practiced writing since starting reflex integration until last week. He cut so well and stayed on the lines better. He held his pencil correctly right away and I noticed he wrote so much better.
4. If he doesn’t get his way he no longer has a meltdown. He may cry, but that is all and it is short lived. If his brother knocks down something he is building or messes his cars he no longer gets upset. All he said last time was “hey” in a nice quiet tone and moved on.
5. Last night he wanted to play with his stepping stones. His balance has improved and I noticed his left arm rested at his side and right arm was straight out. It was bent a few times like it would be for the Moro reflex not being integrated, but I think that’s improvement!
I am unbelievably happy with all these changes after only 4 weeks and I’m so excited to see what the future holds!”

“I love Kara’s approach to brain integration exercises! The primitive reflex program offers a fun and easy way to facilitate brain development in ALL children. After a few weeks, I noticed significant changes in my 3 year old daughter such as getting dressed independently and handling frustration more easily. She also loved watching the video examples of the exercises and we found the exercises easy to perform virtually anywhere and quickly, once we had practiced a few times. As a school based Occupational Therapist, I appreciate Kara’s background as an OT and a mother of a child with special needs. She brings a real understanding of brain development and the challenges of implementing a home program. I have studied reflex integration previously with other teachers, and I find Kara’s exercises the easiest and most practical to implement. I highly recommend her program for any parent as well as medical professionals looking to implement reflex integration into their practice. I also love her easy to follow checklist as a way to stay on track and organized!”
