INPP Practitioner Training.



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

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 throughout our lives.

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

Professionals working with clients who experience learning challenges and functional difficulties use the INPP Method to examine and assess how their client’s body prepares the brain for learning from an early stage in life and how it is currently functioning.

Practitioners learn how the body and brain can change to enhance and support the learning process for each client using neurodevelopmental theory and practice. 

“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.  The body often shows us the blocks that get in the way of learning, functioning and fulfilling our potential.”  [Dr Christine Payard (PhD)]

The INPP Practitioner’s Course teaches participants to assess and integrate primitive reflexes, develop sensory and postural maturity, and support learning and function in children and adults.  It’s non-invasive, gentle, and uses natural developmental movement to address immaturity in the neuromotor and sensory systems that may be negatively impacting learning and function.

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