And if there are any of them at the end of this program that we didn’t meet or that you feel like you need more practice on, that’s where I want you to focus on your study time. So, first of all, we’re going to start off with a question. So a nurse is assessing a 6-month-old infant. What following reflexes should the 6-month-old have?

Is it moro, plantar grasp, stepping, or tonic neck? Again, in your mind, review what those are. And hopefully, you picked plantar grasp because that doesn’t disappear until about the eighth or ninth month. Let’s try another one. So, you have a parent and...
