Neuro-Developmental Therapy

Based on research by the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology (INPP) Chester, established in 1975 by Peter Blythe, a former senior lecturer in Applied Psychology (Education). Neuro-Developmental Delay describes an interruption in a stage of early development which, without the presence of disease or damage, continues to affect specific aspects of a child’s or adult’s performance, whether in the form of unexplained behaviour or underachievement, as they mature.


A Neuro-Developmental Therapist specialises in detecting and correcting underlying physical factors linked with difficulties with learning or under-achievement, day to day functioning and/or anxiety, dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and coordination or balance difficulties.  The INPP Programmes are designed to retrain reflex pathways and thereby improve the control of balance, posture, voluntary movement, visual functioning and perceptual abilities.
