NDS Learning through Movement©

Neuro-Developmental Stimulation (NDS Learning through Movement©) is a comprehensive program focused on inhibiting primary reflexes. The tests and exercises are based on the child's psychomotor development. Neuro-Developmental Stimulation can be implemented by professionals such as speech therapists, psychologists, educators, and special educators, after successfully completing the Introductory theoretical course and the Advanced practical course of NDS Movement Learning© at Cortex Academy®.


The program spans 30 weeks, though it's possible to continue practicing exercises as needed. These exercises should be performed every school day for roughly 5-10 minutes before learning commences. The NDS Learning through Movement© program can be implemented for entire classes, not solely for children experiencing evident learning problems.

The exercises encompass a wide range of movements, from basic head lifting to coordinated use of all body parts. They are performed in a controlled and smooth manner, with an emphasis on imitating the movement patterns of 2-9 month old infants, which serve as the foundation for more complex movements like fine motor skills. Many exercises are conducted in a supine position, helping to promote proper head and body posture, which is essential for good posture later in life. The program also aims to enhance the ability to distinguish between the left and right sides of the body, as well as the upper and lower body, which are fundamental prerequisites for effective coordination.
