The STNR helps the baby lift and control the head for far distance focusing. STNR also prepares baby for creeping (crawling) using automatic movements for raising up on all fours. At this stage in development, movement of the head is automatically linked to movement of the arms and legs.
If the STNR remains active it is another main cause of inability to function in school. This is because up and down head movements remain linked to arm and leg movements, making school work effortful and difficult.
