INPP Practitioner Training

Expressions of interest are being taken for the 2020/2021 INPP Practitioner Course.


If you are a professional working with children and adults who may have learning or functional challenges, then this course will be of interest to you.

So much of what we know about learning, academic and functional success is brain-based.  “So,” I hear you ask, “what’s wrong with that? Isn’t that obvious? We learn with our brain don’t we?”

In short, nothing is wrong with that!  But, how we learn is much more than just a brain-based picture.  Our body primes our brain for learning, supports and helps us learn. For those of us who work in the field of learning challenges, this area of work helps us look closely at how the body prepares the brain for learning from an early stage in life, AND, how the body continues to support the learning process.  If we don’t pay attention to the body and what it is telling us about how we function, then, we are missing some of the greatest clues and cues about understanding how we learn, and what blocks can get in the way of learning. 

Become an INPP Practitioner.

Using the INPP method, you can learn to assess and address neuro-motor and sensory immaturity that often underpins learning and functional challenges.  [Neuro-motor immaturity (NMI) is defined as the retention of primitive reflexes beyond the age of 12 months and/or underdeveloped postural reflexes above the age of 3 years.]  You will learn what that means, what it looks like, how to assess NMI and how to address it in a clinical setting.  

The INPP Programme helps remediate and improve the maturity of the neuro-motor and sensory systems using non-invasive developmental movement exercises.  For over 40 years, children and adults around the world have benefited from this therapeutic intervention programme that uses the principles of neuro-plasticity to help address the issues underlying many functional and learning challenges.

The INPP Practitioner’s Course is based on the original work of Dr Peter Blythe and is delivered globally by INPP Principals.  The common curriculum in this programme includes 4 modules:

  1. The history and theory behind the INPP Programme;
  2. The INPP testing protocol;
  3. The INPP therapy and exercise programme;
  4. An exam and assessment module.

This course trains the participants in the INPP Method leading to licentiate membership of INPP International and certification by INPP International.

The next INPP Practitioner Course in Australia begins in November 2020.  Places are limited in each course (max of 10 people).

NOTE:  The INPP Practitioner Course is bodywork and requires a face-to-face component for delivery of the programme.  If circumstances prevent the delivery of the programme (eg. COVID-19 restrictions), dates and delivery may be altered.  Integrating Thinking does not accept any responsibility for factors such as this impacting on the delivery of the course.  Changes in delivery of this course in 2020 – 2021 will be negotiated with participants, if required.

If you are a professional educator, allied health care practitioner, psychologist or have a degree aligned with these ways of working, this could be a course for you.
