Assessments of Children
INPP assessments and treatment programmes are supported by thirty years of research. We can help with the following childhood problems:
- Dyspraxia (developmental coordination disorder)
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
- Coordination problems
- Problems with concentration and organisation
- Asperger’s Syndrome
- Motion sickness
- Reading and Writing problems
Learning and behaviour are products of how the brain and body work together. In order to read, a child needs to develop smooth eye movements; writing demands the additional skill of getting eyes and hand to work together – all motor skills are linked in some way to the functioning of balance. Any problems in these areas will undermine a child’s ability to achieve in the classroom. These symptoms are not necessarily connected to intelligence.
How we help
- Identify whether physical factors play a part in your child’s problem(s)
- Assess and identify the source of the problem
- Provide effective remedial treatment (non-invasive and drug-free) aimed at the cause of the problem
- Provide ongoing support for parents and children seeking help
The key to success is in pinpointing the child’s developmental level of difficulty. Once identified, simple exercises aimed at the level of the child’s problem can help to re-educate pathways between the brain and the body, creating a secure foundation for all aspects of learning.
Through our assessment and analysis of your child, we will devise simple and effective physical exercises that are easy for your child to do, to help overcome the physical basis to learning and behavioural difficulties.
We will assess how your child processes sounds and provide auditory training programmes to help your child overcome difficulties with these processes. Our analysis is more in-depth than the simple hearing tests offered by your child’s school or GP.
