Undiagnosed neuromotor immaturity is increasingly being held responsible for a broad range of symptoms, including anxiety, behavioral disorders, and learning difficulties. Available to healthcare professionals for the first time, this book contains proven screening tests to measure neuromotor immaturity in children and adults in order to provide a basis for referral and help. Based on the pioneering work of Sally Goddard Blythe and the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology, it provides reproducible scoring and observation sheets for use in practice.

The screening tests allow healthcare practitioners to assess disorders of movement that can negatively affect educational performance and emotional function in children and adolescents, as well as the thoughts and behavior of adults. It is a novel approach for healthcare professionals who observe aberrant reflexes in their patients in the absence of more serious pathology. The perfect complement to Assessing Neuromotor Readiness for Learning, these tests makes new resources and information available to patients who are often overlooked by standard clinical and educational services.
