There will be CME credits attached to this program.
Description: The development of
a young child is profoundly influenced by experience. Experiences shape the organization of the brain which, in turn,
influences the emotional, social, cognitive and physiological activities. Insights into this process come from understanding
brain development. Based on a neurosequential understanding of brain development, the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics
(NMT) is a developmentally sensitive, neurobiologically-informed approach to clinical problem solving that integrates core
principles of neurodevelopment and traumatology to inform work with children, families, and the communities in which they
live. This session will provide an overview of key principles of neurodevelopment, review key functions of the brain,
and outline the hierarchy of brain development. From there, Dr. Perry will describe how the NMT approach can help professionals
determine the strengths and vulnerabilities of a child and create an individualized intervention, enrichment, and educational
plan matched to his/her unique needs.
