INPP Practitioner Training 2021-2022

Applications for the 2021/2022 INPP Practitioner Training Course are NOW OPEN.


Are you a professional working with children and adults who have learning or functional challenges?  Then this course will interest you.

INPP Practitioner Training is offered Internationally in over 12 countries and in Australia by experienced Neurodevelopmental Educator and Consultant, Dr Christine Payard (PhD). 

How we learn and function is much more than just a brain-based activity.  Our body primes our brain for learning, supports and helps us learn.

The INPP Practitioner Course helps you understand the basic neuro-motor and sensory maturity aspects of development that impact learning, and how to identify and address immaturity that you discover in the neuromotor and sensory systems of your clients.

Professionals working with clients who experience learning challenges and functional difficulties can use the INPP Method to help identify and examine how the body prepares the brain for learning from an early stage in life, AND, how the body and brain can change to enhance and support the learning process for each client. 

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 the blocks that can get in the way of learning, function and fulfilling our potential.

Become an INPP Practitioner.

You can assess and address neuro-motor and sensory immaturity that often underpins learning and functional challenges by using the proven INPP method.  [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 NMI means, what it looks like, how to assess it and how to address it in a clinical setting. 

The INPP method 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 (PhD) and is delivered globally by INPP Principals. Australia’s INPP Principal is Nueordevelopmental Educator,  Dr Christine Payard (PhD).
