What is the INPP method ?
The INPP method is a noninvasive treatment method developed over 35 years ago in Chester England by Dr. Peter Blythe used to work with children and adults presenting with neuro-motor immaturity (NMI). NMI is the term given when there is a presence of a cluster of primitive reflexes and immature or absent postural responses. Specifically, in children this can result with children underachieving in their academic performance, can present as symptoms of children with ADD, dyslexia, or developmental coordination disorder, can result with reading problems, writing problems, coordination difficulties, concentration difficulties, and can be seen in children with Asperger’s Syndrome, Anxiety disorder, Panic disorder , and agoraphobia (mainly in adults).
INPP Method uses standardized neurological tests, intending to reveal the presence of pathological primitive reflexes, or find immature postural responses. Both of these groups may play a significant role in the difficulties which the person has. Some reflexes influenced by some specific features, while others may interfere with motor control, balance, coordination and control of eye movements necessary for writing or reading.
