INPP Full Diagnostic Assessment

This assessment consists of extensive non-invasive neurological tests which assess a number of skills:

  • Gross and fine muscle coordination
  • Balance
  • Patterns of motor development
  • Reflexes
  • Laterality
  • Oculo-motor functioning
  • Visual perception and motor integration

The Assessment, at which the parent also needs to be present, takes approximately 2 hours. At the end of the assessment, a verbal report will be given. A home programme of daily physical exercises is prescribed, based on the assessment findings. These movements and exercises have been devised to stimulate maturation within the nervous system. An educational report will be sent out two weeks after the assessment.

Treatment

The treatment comprises of a series of physical exercises based on early movements made by the developing child in the first year(s) of life. The exercises are designed to retrain the reflex pathways and thereby improve the control of balance, posture, voluntary movement, visual functioning and perceptual abilities.

A typical programme will take about 5-10 minutes a day over a period of 12 months. Progress is reviewed at 8 weekly intervals and exercises are changed when appropriate.

Reviews take approximately 45 minutes.
