INPP Chester was established in 1975 with the aims of:
1. Researching the role of immaturity in the functioning of the central nervous system (CNS) in children presenting with specific learning difficulties, under-achievement or behavioural problems and adults suffering from agoraphobia and panic disorder.
2. Developing reliable and replicable methods of assessment to identify signs of immaturity in the functioning of the CNS.
3. Developing effective physical remedial programmes.
The INPP method is the product of the above.
