Screening Questionnaire

Children's Screening Questionnaire

The Children's Questionnaire is designed to identify whether the INPP Neuro-developmental therapy/reflex integration we offer is likely to  help you.  This is helpful for both you and me: for you so that you will see the sort of information I will be looking for and for me to begin to form an understanding of the difficulties your child may be facing.

Research published in the British Journal of Occupational Therapy has shown that a score of 7 or more 'yes' answers on this questionnaire indicates that further investigation for underlying neuro-motor immaturity is advised for children over 7 years of age


This questionnaire is specifically looking at neuromotor immaturity. It may be that there are still ways that Map & Compass can be a help including sound therapy or a customised programme, but this will give you a good idea if neuromotor immaturity may be at the root of the difficulties your child is facing.  For more information on the auditory therapy I offer that can address a range of difficulties please read more on the website or feel free to be in touch.
