School doctors ‘should check infants are ready for lessons’ All children should be assessed by a school doctor before starting full-time education amid fears too many infants are unfit for the classroom, a leading academic has warned.

Please note that I have never claimed to be a “leading academic” as stated in this article.

I do however, stand by the research that has been carried out in schools using the screening tests formerly known as The INPP Test Battery and Developmental Exercise Programme for use in Schools with Children with Special Needs and recently published as Assessing neuromotor readiness for learning.

This programme provides teachers with simple tests to help identify children who would benefit physical intervention programme(s) in school.
