A reader recently asked several questions pertaining to startle reflex. Because of the complexity of the questions I’ve chosen to create a series of posts answering their questions. The first question reads: “How do you deal with your startle reflex in school when your peers or your teacher don’t understand?”
My best advice to you however, is to explore a simple explanation that works to fill their curiosity and concern. The fact of life is that Cerebral Palsy and startle reflex go hand in hand for many. My question for you is this: does the display of your startle reflex embarrass you in public? It comes a time on occasion, when I startle on them, unaware that I’ve done so. I only know that I have based on the fact that their expression changed, and it looked somewhat alarmed. I explain this is a normal fact of life that you have no need for concern.
I hope this is a helpful explanation please do feel free to comment and let me know if you have any further questions that I could be of help in answering. I will continue to answer the remaining questions that you posted in your comment in further blog posts, so I recommend you stay tuned for part two in the series.
