The Key Clinic respects and acknowledges the pioneering work of Dr Peter Blythe and Sally Goddard-Blythe, founders of The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology (INPP). The INPP's extensive research and development of methods, to assess and overcome immaturity of functioning to the central nervous system, has been fundamental in the ongoing development of Neuro-Developmental Education.
Results of many studies indicate that there is a clear link between retained primitive reflexes (neurodevelopmental immaturity) and underperformance. Importantly, they have also found that, the more the nervous system is matured through a targeted movement programme, the better the gains in reading, writing, maths, processing speeds, ocular-motor functioning and the ability to sit still and pay attention

The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology was set up in 1975 by PhD Psychologist Peter Blythe. His aim was to research into the effect of immaturity in the functioning of the central nervous system on specific learning difficulties and on adults suffering from agoraphobia and panic disorder.
AUDITORY THERAPY (AIT) RESEARCH
The Key Clinic pays tribute to Dr Guy Bérard, accomplished Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist and pioneer of the Auditory Integration Training intervention.
Results of almost forty independent studies show that a course of AIT is likely to improve, comprehension, ability to speed read, auditory processing speeds, face recognition and memory for images, words and numbers. It’s also been shown to reduce hypersensitivity to sounds and help regulate other areas of hyper- or hypo- sensitivity, as well as hyperactivity, anxiety levels, shyness. A clear link has also been shown between children who underperform in class and those who have ‘distortions’ in how they hear.
" Thank you for your support of all our family over the last few months. All of our 5 children have been clients of the clinic, including me, and we have all seen massive improvements in concentration, co-ordination, posture, hearing, speaking, tracking and, most importantly, confidence and general well-being!
