Assessing Neuromotor Readiness for Learning. The INPP Developmental Screening Test and School Intervention Programme

‘This short screening test and developmental movement programme was devised in 1996 with the aim of making a daily physical programme designed to develop the foundations for physical literacy available beyond the private sector.
Since its inception it has been the subject of a number of independent studies which have indicated that a significant percentage of children in mainstream schools have minor issues with physical coordination, which can act as a barrier to achievement in the classroom[i]. Studies have also shown that The INPP School Intervention Programme is effective in improving physical coordination, being of general benefit to all children but having the most impact on children who show signs of immature coordination and who are also underachieving in the classroom[ii] [iii].

It should be stressed that the screening test should not be used as the basis for diagnosis but simply to evaluate a child’s ability on a range of simple tests for balance and coordination before and after intervention.
If a child has an existing medical condition or is undergoing treatment or therapy of any kind, advice should be sought from the relevant medical practitioner before participating in the intervention programme.

It has been brought to our attention that a small number of courses have been run outside of the United Kingdom which have either not been licensed by INPP or which have not followed the set curriculum. If you have any concerns about the validity of the certificate you have received or a course you are planning to attend, please contact either INPP Chester or the person listed as the INPP Principal in the country where the course is being run.
