Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics ™


Arizona’s Children Association provides assessment and treatment planning using the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) in partnership with Dr. Bruce Perry and the Neurosequential Network. Developed by Dr. Perry, the NMT is an evidence-based, trauma-informed, and brain-based approach to clinical problem solving.

In many situations, children who exhibit unhealthy and difficult behaviors (acting out, aggression, self-harm, sleep disturbances, and struggles with regulating emotions), have brain development challenges that can be addressed with proper intervention.

NMT Provides the structure to best recognize experiences that have impacted a child’s developing brain. The goal of NMT is to provide an assessment of the child, determine primary problems, identify key strengths, and apply interventions in a way that will help family, educators, and therapists to best meet the needs of the child.

The NMT recognizes that brain development follows a sequential pattern and incorporates current research regarding the effects of adverse experiences on a child’s brain development. Through NMT, a model is provided to assess neurological disorganization and help identify developmentally appropriate interventions.

By targeting deficits within the brain by utilizing NMT’s brain mapping, clinicians are better equipped to identify more effective therapeutic, environmental, and relational treatment approaches.
