INPP2021 – XXVI. INTERNATIONAL INPP CONFERENCE

XXVI. INTERNATIONAL INPP CONFERENCE

DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF MULTIDISCIPLINARY CHILD AND ADULT CLIENT CARE

28th – 29th May 2021, online

Conference opens a forum for discussion and exchange of knowledge from professional fields allied to Medicine, Psychology and Pedagogy, focusing on various aspects of child development and child and adult dysfunctions. Experts from different countries will share with participants the knowledge and experience of both practice and research in the areas of neuromotor development, metabolism, nutrition, auditory processing and visual functioning and psyche:

Norman Doidge (CA) – THE BRAIN’S WAY OF HEALING

Norman is a leading expert on neuroplasticity, author of books The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing.

Sally Goddard Blythe (GB) – LEARNING TO MOVE; MOVING TO LEARN. HOW PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT LAYS THE FOUNDATIONS FOR LEARNING

Sally is a leading expert on neuromotor immaturity and a correlation between immature motor skills and lower educational performance.

  1. Codoni (CH) and her concept of the body orientated speech therapy k-o-s-t; M. D. Alcon (IT) about stimulation of an immature reflex system in severe neurodevelopmental disorders; R. Malak (PL) about the role of Tomatis method, M. Santiago Buey (ES) about QEEG diagnostic and a treatment combining INPP and biofeedback, T. Hošková (SK) about functional optometry and other leading experts.

Use of the INPP Screening Test in schools has revealed immature reflexes are not confined to neurological impairment but are present to a lesser degree in a percentage of the general population of school children in the United Kingdom, and that there is a correlation between immature motor skills and lower educational performance.

Introduction of the INPP school program showed that neuroplasticity enables physical intervention regimes to affect more than simply physical skills, as statistically significant reduction in signs of neuromotor immaturity were accompanied by reduction in poverty related levels of dysfunction.

Sally will also provide a rationale as to why, if issues related to neuromotor immaturity are not identified in childhood they can lead to problems in adult life including agoraphobia and panic disorder.

Sally Goddard Blythe MSc. is Director of The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology. She is the author of 8 books and has been instrumental in carrying out research and post graduate training in the INPP method to 14 other countries.

WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY

Through its programming, the largest international INPP conference in the last three years contributes to sharing information related to autism.  We are joining the World Autism Awareness Day campaign as part of which, if you buy 2 tickets between March 31 and April 2, you get the second one for a discounted price of 97 euros.

INTER RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, COGNITIVE FUNCTIONS AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

As a result of the progress achieved, mankind has dramatically reduced the amount of physical activity needed just to survive, and the development of digital technologies has exponentially accelerated the trend. Few people question the negative effects on mental and physical health. However, what is less known is the fact that physical fitness also impacts academic performance.

In 2002, the California Department of Education compared the results of academic performance tests (SAT-9) and physical ability tests (PFT) of 954,000 students in grades 5, 7 and 9. They found a strong correlation between children’s physical fitness and academic performance. If a child reached the expected standard in three or more physical parameters, they also ranked among the top students, and this was true in all grades.

Numerous high-quality experimental studies show that increasing the physical activity in a school setting has a significant positive effect on academic performance in children, among other things.  The positive impact seems to be even more pronounced in children with academic and behavioural difficulties.

In the talk by Viera Lutherova you will learn more about what types of activities are best suited to address specific types of problems.
