Welcome to Integrating Thinking

We look for underlying reasons why our clients experience functional and learning difficulties.

Integrating Thinking is a Neuro-Developmental Education organisation driven by a desire to help families, children and adults with difficulties in learning, work and social situations.  We help by looking at underlying developmental sensory & neuro-motor maturity.  

Integrating Thinking uses, promotes, and teaches non-invasive techniques to assess and address developmental immaturity that can limit the learning process and cause difficulties in sport & social situations.

As a parent, you may have noticed your child has difficulty performing tasks that should be quite easy, even though he/she may be quite bright and intelligent.  Their teacher, or group leader, may suggest that: “They could do better.”  “They are not meeting their potential.” He/she may be fidgeting regularly, daydreaming, not paying attention or listening. They may be described as:  “easily distracted”, “Not trying hard enough”, “Can’t sit still.” They may be anxious and reluctant to try anything new.

As an adult, you may have learned to cope and develop strategies to avoid situations requiring reading and writing.  You may have developed other skills to counteract difficulties with inattention, co-ordination and balance. But, at the end of the day, you feel exhausted because you’ve been working so hard at an unconscious level to ‘stay in control’.

As a practitioner or teacher you see your clients and students aren’t quite meeting their potential because there seems to be something missing.  They can’t sustain attention. Learning is excessively hard and even their balance and co-ordination may seem to be effected. You want to help address that challenge.

This Youtube video helps explain a bit about the impact of neuro-motor and sensory immaturity for learning:

Neuro-motor immaturity symptoms include:

  • Attention and concentration problems
  • Co-ordination problems
  • Difficulty in Physical Education, learning to swim or bike riding
  • Difficulty telling the time
  • Inability to sit still or remain silent
  • Mixed laterality
  • Poor eye-hand coordination
  • Maths problems
  • Speech and articulation problems
  • Reading problems
  • Writing problems

Training:

INPP:  Integrating Thinking is the official training organisation for the INPP method in Australia providing:-

  • Post graduate training for INPP practitioners who want to practice the INPP method.
  • Training for teachers in school programmes to assess and enhance neuro-motor readiness for learning.
  • Training for Health Care Practitioners (Behavioral Optometrists, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, GP’s and others) in screening for Neuro-Motor Immaturity.

Customised training and workshops for Early Childhood Educators, Health Care Practitioners, Primary School Teachers, Teacher Aides, Vision Therapists and others.  Email us for details:  admin@integratingthinking.com.au


Consultations and Intervention:

Integrating Thinking:

  • identifies and addresses underlying problems of neuro-motor immaturity and auditory processing difficulties using the INPP method of well researched and documented programmes 
  • provides a clinical assessment of children and adults using standardised neurological tests and listening audiometry assessments.
  • uses drug free and non-invasive programmes to match the individual’s neuro-developmental profile to support learning.




Integrating Thinking can help address:

  • Retained primitive reflexes and under-developed postural reflexes
  • Reading and writing difficulties
  • Dyslexia (reading difficulties)
  • Dysgraphia (writing problems)
  • Co-ordination difficulties
  • Concentration problems
  • Auditory processing difficulties
  • Visual Processing difficulties
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
  • Asperger’s syndrome
  • Educational underachievement (eg. consistently being told “you can do better”)
  • Dyspraxia (clumsiness and awkwardness of movement)


Information & Presentations:

Integrating Thinking provides presentations and information sessions for schools, parent groups and professional bodies on the following topics:

  • “Learning with the Body in Mind”
  • Neuro-Motor Immaturity, Sensory Development and Learning
  • Vision and Primary Reflexes
  • Enhancing Neuro-motor Development in Early Childhood

Integrating Thinking provides consultancy services to educational institutions and health care professionals regarding neuro-physiological aspects of learning and neuro-motor and sensory maturity.
