This full day training will be an overview of the Neurosequential Model and will provide an understanding of the assessment process, which examines both past and present experiences and functioning. It includes a review of the history of adverse experiences and relational health factors that help create an estimate of the timing and severity of the developmental risk that may have influenced brain development. The NMT “mapping” process helps identify various areas in the brain that appear to have functional and developmental problems, in turn, this helps guide the selection and sequencing of developmentally sensitive interventions. These interventions are designed to replicate the normal sequence of development beginning with the lowest, most abnormally functioning part of the brain and moving sequentially.
