Sally Goddard Blythe

Consultant in Neuro-Developmental Education
International Director of The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology in Chester and author of books on child development


The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology (INPP)was set up in 1975 by PhD Psychologist Peter Blythe with the aim of researching into the effect of immaturity in the functioning of the central nervous system on specific learning difficulties and adults suffering from agoraphobia and panic disorder.

Sally Goddard Blythe MSc trained at the INPP in 1987/88 and joined the permanent staff in 1988. Since that time she has written numerous articles and papers on neuro-developmental factors in educational difficulties.

In 1996, her first book “A teacher’s window into the child’s mind“ was published by Fern Ridge Press in the U.S.A. This book, which was subsequently extended and updated under the new title of “Reflexes, Learning and Behaviour“ has been translated into 6 languages and has provided the basic information on the significance, assessment and remediation of abnormal reflexes for many other professionals.
