INPP (The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology)
UNABLE TO SIT STILL?
INPP (The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology) was established in 1975 by Dr. Peter Blythe. Peter Blythe and Sally Goddard Blythe are experts in the area of NDD (Neuro-Developmental Delay) and who have written numerous books on the subject. INPP has pioneered research into NDD.
The INPP program has been developed to offer a completely drug-free and non-invasive treatment which can help children overcome specific learning difficulties.
Zoran Pejic is the Singapore Licentiate of INPP and provides the INPP Program.
We all are born with a set of primitive reflexes. If these primitive reflexes are not fully integrated during infancy, control of voluntary, skilled and complex movements can be affected. This is known as Neuro Developmental Delay (NDD) or immaturity of the Central Nervous System.
These uninhibited reflexes can interfere with subsequent motor development, hand-eye coordination, perceptual skills and visual functioning. Difficulty in developing adequate eye control and visual function to assist learning tasks including reading, writing and comprehension can be results.
This physiological basis for learning difficulty can cause frustration and an inability to comply with many of the requirements of a standard schooling experience. It can also interfere with concentration, memory and perception of information.
HOW INPP WORKS
My daughter finds it so difficult to sit still.
Our son seems to have limited fine motor skills.
Bed-wetting is still a problem in our household.
I notice my student's coordination has not developed as per her age group.
My son is hypersensitive to sound or visual stimulation and unable to exclude irrelevant data and information. He is so easily distracted.
The INPP method of Neuro-Developmental Therapy (developed by the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology) helps address difficulties associated with Neuro Developmental Immaturity (or Neuro Developmental Delay).
After the comprehensive INPP assessment, a training-program is worked-out and prescribed. This training program can be done at home.
ASSESSMENT & REPORT DISCUSSION
A clinical assessment process usually takes about two hours. The findings of the assessment are summarized in a report, which is discussed with the client in a subsequent meeting.
During that meeting, an individualized movement and therapy program designed to meet the developmental profile of the child or adult seeking assistance will be discussed and shown to the client.
HOME-BASED TRAINING & FOLLOW-UP
The client then does daily customized exercises at home. They are easy to do and not very time-intensive.
In regular follow-up assessments these exercises will be modified and adapted to ensure a continued customization as the patient progresses.
A full program usually can be finished within one year.
“After the INPP assessment, once we were back home, we started doing the exercises we were given. They are so simple that at first we doubted that they could have much impact on him. Well, it has been amazing! The progress is great and remarkable."

“This is the first time someone can explain to me why my son is struggling on so many fronts.
I am so looking forward to starting the exercises - it all makes so much sense to me now.”
