Helping children to succeed using The INPP Method

INPP specialises in identifying physical factors which can underlie the learning problems which are often a feature of Dyslexia, Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD or Dyspraxia) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and which show up as under-achievement.

The INPP Method does not seek to replace conventional assessements carried out by Educational Psychologists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists or specialist teaching methods used to support individuals with specific learning difficulties. However, The INPP Method does provide a system of identifying underlying physical factors that contribute to under-achievement and devises physical programmes to correct the problems.

The INPP Method can be accessed in two ways:
1. Parents bring their child to INPP for an initial consultation, full assessment and exercise programme. The exercises need to be carried out for 5 – 10 minutes a day a for period of about 12 months. Progress is monitored at return visits every 2 months, and the programme adjusted accordingly. Exercises are individually tailored to the results of the assessment. For information on the clinical programme for children or adults see www.inpp.org.uk/individual assessment.

2. The INPP Schools Programme
This is a more general programme using physical exercises with a whole class of children on a daily basis in schools, under the supervision of a teacher who has attended an INPP approved training day in its use. Teachers are instructed how to carry out a short battery of tests to assess balance and coordination at the beginning and end of the programme and to compare these results with educational baseline assessment. This programme has been the subject of a number of independent published studies in schools. See www.inpp.org./research.
