About INPP

INPP – The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology

INPP was established as a private research, clinical and training organisation in Chester, UK in 1975, dedicated to the development of assessment procedures to identify underlying physical factors in specific learning difficulties and to the development of effective remediation programmes including the INPP screening test and developmental movement programme for use in schools.

In the Slovak and Czech Republic, INPP is under the umbrella of the Institute of Psychotherapy and Sociotherapy. More about INPP activities can be found on the inpp.online website.

INPP has published a number of professional publications that help professionals and the general public around the world.
