At INPP, we look behind and treat the symptoms of Neuro-Motor Immaturity (NMI) by identifying the source of the problem.
The term NMI or Neuro-Motor Immaturity describes the omission or arrest of a stage of early development. Every normal, full-term baby is born with a set of primitive or survival reflexes that are inhibited or controlled by higher centres in the brain during the first year of life. View more information on the causes of NMI.
If these are not inhibited at the correct time, they remain active in the body and can interfere with balance, motor control, eye functioning, eye-hand coordination and perceptual skills. They can result in behavioural symptoms such as frustration, hyperactivity and hypersensitivity, and failure to match performance to ability. View more information on diagnosing NMI.
NMI in Children
If you suspect Neuro-Motor Immaturity might be a factor in your child’s presenting problem(s), we suggest you complete the Initial Screening Questionnaire for free.
