The Neurosequential Model in Education (NME) draws upon the NMT (a neurodevelopmentally-informed, biologically respectful perspective on human development and functioning) to help educators understand student behavior and performance.  


The goals of NME are to educate faculty and students in basic concepts of neurosequential development and then teach them how to apply this knowledge to the teaching and learning process.  NME is not a specific “intervention”; it is a way to educate school staff about brain development and developmental trauma and then to further teach them how to apply that knowledge to their work with students in and outside the classroom, particularly those students with adverse childhood experiences.


The Neurosequential Network has developed a set of training courses to help school counselors, administrators, teachers and support staff utilize the NME with the children they serve:

It’s now possible for educators to enroll in our online courses!  We offer two options both self-paced and led by Dr. Bruce Perry.  Our “Introduction to the NME Training Series” is self-paced and uses everyday classroom challenges with real children to introduce emerging concepts related to brain functioning, brain development and traumatology in everyday educational settings.  We also offer a 15 hour (ten 90-minute sessions) NME Case-based Training Series which a more in depth look at NME and its applications in the classroom.

The NME Trainer Program is available for select educators to provide a basic level of exposure to core concepts and key elements necessary to bring the NME and the NME Classroom Tools into their educational setting.


The NME Trainer program is organized into 9 modules and will take approximately 9 months to complete. Our program involves active participation in an online study group that meets for 1 hour two times per month.  


2022 STUDY GROUPS:  We begin new Study Groups several times each year.  We will begin new groups in mid-September and in November 2022; full schedules TDB.   (We will also begin a group in October through our NME Boot Camp; see below for more details.)
