The MINDS Group will support the ongoing mission of the Svetlana Masgutova Educational Institute (the SMEI, LLC), The Masgutova Foundation, The Masgutova Graduate School of NeuroDevelopmental Sciences) and the MNRI® Method, which are to provide scientific knowledge and application of the best neurodevelopmental and well-being practices, utilizing non-invasive reflex neuromodulation techniques for professionals, parents, and caregivers to address neurodevelopmental challenges and to maximize the genetically given potential of all children and adults. MNRI® / The Masgutova Method® is a set of programs focused on the restoration and maturation of primary movements, reflexes, coordination systems, skills for optimal performance of natural mechanisms, protection and survival, and developmental processes, brain functioning, and neuro-sensory-motor integration.
