Ms. Irlen has been in the field of education for the past 30 years. Her background includes 15 years as a School Psychologist, 30 years as a Child and Family Therapist, Educational Therapist, founder and Director of the Adult Learning Disabilities Program and Assistant Professor of Adult Learning Disabilities at California State University/Long Beach, instructor in psychology at Cornell University, and research assistant at Cornell.

She has been recognized for her dedication to working with children and adults and is listed in Who’s Who in California, Who’s Who in Asia and the Pacific Nations, International Woman of the Year (1999-2000), International Who’s Who of Professionals, Kingston’s National Registry of Who’s Who, and the Dictionary of International Biography.

Over 20 years ago, research directed by Helen Irlen under a federal research grant studied methods of helping children and adults with reading and learning disabilities. One important discovery was that a subgroup of individuals showed a marked improvement in their reading ability when reading material was covered by colored acetate sheets. For the next five years, Ms. Irlen worked on refining her discovery, developing diagnostic testing instruments, and patenting a set of colored filters.

Peter Blythe, Ph.D.

Peter Blythe is the Director of the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology in Chester, England. The Institute sponsors the yearly International Conference of Neuro-Developmental Delay In Children With Specific Learning Difficulties. This event brings together scientists in many different fields of expertise. It is now in its thirteenth year.

The Institute has affiliatees in many different countries which use the specific techniques of reflex stimulation/inhibition developed at the Institute. While children are seen and counselled at INPP Peter Blythe and Sally Goddard train teachers at monthly workshops how to spot neuro-developmental delay in students who have difficulties learning and teach tech techniques which can be used in the classroom to ensure that all children have the neurological readiness to function successfully.

In his early professional life, Peter Blythe was divided into working as a therapist with adults manifesting all the symptoms of neuroses, and working with children of near average, average or above average intelligence who underachieve educationally. For a number of years he was a senior lecturer in psychology at a College of Education. In addition to having published many papers in the field of physiological psychology, Peter Blythe is the author of Hypnotism: Its Power and Practise. The highly popular Stress Disease: The Growing Plague, and the book which he now calls outdated, An Organic Basis for Neuroses and Educational Difficulties. He and Sally Goddard cooperated in the video Learning Problems and Neuro-developmental Delay which has been widely distributed internationally.

Sally Goddard Blythe, N.D.T.

Sally Goddard Blythe is the Co-Director of the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology (INPP) in Chester, England. She is the author of the widely acclaimed book A Teacher's Window Into The Child´s Mind (1996 Fern Ridge Press, Eugene, OR) which is in its second edition in both the Swedish and German translations. It is also being translated into Danish and Spanish.

When she joined INPP in 1987, her first research interest was into the effect that the Fear Paralysis Reflex - a very early intra-utero reflex - had on later motor, academic and emotional development. (1989, The Fear Paralysis Reflex and its Interaction with the Primitive Reflexes. INPP Monograph series.) This eventually led to her presenting a paper at the 3rd European Conference on Neuro-developmental Delay in Children with Specific Learning Difficulties in March 1991, entitled Elective Mutism: The Unchosen Silence. (INPP Monograph).

From that time onward, she has been working on the papers. She has also written articles for The (London) Times Educational Supplement, Music Teacher, Nursery World, etc. and has lectured extensively throughout Britain, Ireland, France, Germany and Spain.

Currently she is planning another book, although her time is largely taken up with working with children with a variety of Specific Learning Difficulties - dyslexia, reading problems, writing difficulties, ADD dyscalcula and dyspraxia. Every two months she gives a "One Day Teaching Course" which helps special needs teachers to detect those children who may have an underlying neuro-developmental delay playing a major role in their learning difficulties. She then presents a developmental motor programme which can be used as a class activity rather than having to work with each child individually. Each year she leads the One Year Four Module training course to post graduate students. This presents the theory developed by INPP, a full screening methodology for detecting underlying neuro-developmental factors, the diagnostic assessment and the unique INPP Stimulation/Inhibition programme which has been proven to be successful in a double-blind, cross-over study.
