The Masgutova Method®

of Neuro-Sensory-Motor and Reflex Integration has its origins in a different way of thinking

.

Dr.Svetlana Masgutova

Svetlana Masgutova, Ph. D., a Russian psychologist currently living in Poland and the US, has based her method on the work done from the 1920’s to 1950’s by Russian physiologists I. Pavlov and I. Sechenov: neurophysiologists, A. Uhtomsky, N. Bernstein and P. Anokhin; and psychologist L. Vygotsky.

 What Is A Reflex ?

A reflex, in its simplest definition, is a conscious or unconscious behavior (output) occurring in response to a change (input).

Scientific investigation continues to reveal the subtle complexities of reflexes and how hugely important they are to our ability to exist. It is not surprising, therefore, to find references to reflex action as far back as the pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, Anaxagorus (500 B.C.) who spoke of a self-organizing nature of the mind’s activity and Plato (400 B.C.) who proposed that sense experiences act to guide assertions about the outside world.

Why is Reflex Integration important?

It has become apparent through the thousands of assessments completed by Dr. Masgutova that as the number of non-integrated primary infant reflexes increase in an individual, the range and severity of motor, communication, and cognitive challenges and emotional and behavioral regulation issues correspondingly increase.

Motor movement reflexes can be categorized according to the number and combination of muscles, joints, and limbs involved in executing a particular motor response. Somatic reflex categories include motor reflex actions, movements, patterns, and schemes. This structural characterization can be applied to all sensorimotor  reflexes whether they are lifelong, primary, innate or acquired.

The Masgutova Method of Neuro-Sensory-Motor and Reflex Integration has its origins in a different way of thinking.
Svetlana Masgutova, Ph. D., a Russian psychologist currently working in Poland and the US, has based her method on the work done from the 1920’s to 1950’s by Russian physiologists I. Pavlov and I. Stechenov: neurophysiologists, A. Uhtomsky, N. Bernstein and P. Anokhin; and psychologist L. Vigotsky.
These scientists/researchers placed reflexes in the frame of both higher and lower nervous system activity. They saw in infant reflexes not only a protective or survival response to stress or danger, but also the neuro-physiological foundation for physical, emotional and cognitive development.
“The first infant movements do not disappear; they continue to work in union with higher nervous system formations…”   L.S. Vigotsky, Russian psychologist, 1930 
Through her own research on over 3,000 children over the past 20 years in Russia, Poland, USA and Canada and her practical experience with more than 27,000 clients worldwide,
Dr. Masgutova has expanded her conceptual understanding of these phenomena and developed her own sensory-motor integration program:

June 2014 Rapid Prompting Method workshop NJ

Jackie Dorshorst is a Speech/Language Pathologist with more than 20 years of experience working with a variety of disabilities. She began her career in the Green Bay School District before working in Milwaukee Public Schools. She has been in the School District of Waukesha for 20 years.

In her years as a Speech/Language Pathologist, Jackie developed a special place in her heart for children with autism. During her search for methods to help those with autism, she met a special boy named Alec. Her adventure with RPM began when Alec’s family invited Jackie to Texas to meet Soma Mukhopadhyay. When Soma introduced RPM to Alec, it was nothing short of magical. Alec communicated his thoughts for the first time in his life. After returning from that trip, Alec’s school life changed because of the dedication o

A workshop consists of the following:

  • Overview of Rapid Prompting Method (RPM).
  • Sharing videos of clients I have worked with. Explaining steps of RPM.
  • Working with students.  The student will be with me in a separate room with a video monitor and staff is in another room watching RPM via SKYPE.  It would be difficult to have the student do RPM in front of all staff in same room.  Time for RPM can range from 20-30 minutes each.  At other workshops, I have had the student’s staff/parents come in the room and other staff/parents watch over SKYPE.
  • Questions/comments after sessions are completed. Could have questions after each student or after all complete.
  • Parent/teacher hands-on training, if requested
  • she can see each student more than once

Akhil Autism Foundation

Autism is a severe (complex) developmental disorder that begins at birth or within the first two-and-a-half years of life. Most autistic children are perfectly normal in appearance, but spend their time engaged in puzzling and disturbing behaviours which are markedly different from those of typical children.
