Project Overview

The Texas Institute for Child and Family Wellbeing (TXICFW) in collaboration with the Buena Vista Foundation, Klein Foundation, St. David’s Foundation, and Tapestry Foundation, developed a 2-year endeavor utilizing a Neurosequential Model Community Coordinator to support the implementation of the Neurosequential Model (NM™) in child- and family-serving organizations in Central Texas.

The NM™ developed by Dr. Bruce Perry is not a specific therapeutic technique or intervention; it is a way to organize a child’s history and current functioning. The goal of this approach is to structure the assessment of a child, articulate the primary problems, identify key strengths, and recommend an application of interventions (educational, enrichment, and therapeutic) in a way that will help family, educators, therapists, and related professionals best meet the needs of the child. The main goals of this endeavor are to support the internal practices of participating community organizations and to create a strong local web of support that can strengthen expertise across organizations working with children and families.

This will be achieved through:

  1. Broad dissemination of the core principles of the NM™ across our community
  2. Providing community education as requested on the NM™ core concepts
  3. Offer practitioners and organizations support
  4. Facilitate Neurosequential Collaborative of Central Texas (NCCT) meetings with participating community members
