Description: The impact of developmental adversities including trauma, maltreatment, neglect and intrauterine substance exposure can be devastating; the resulting academic, behavioral, emotional, social and physical health problems make parenting and caring for these children and youth very challenging, often leading to misunderstandings, frustration, and disrupted or failed placement.   The complexities of developmental adversity can confuse physicians, therapists, educators and carers; a common problem is the different points of view and expectations that adults and systems attempting to help these children.  The very heart of the Neurosequential Model is to provide a better understanding of the effects of trauma, neglect and other developmental insults on the developing child; and, then with these new understandings, creating developmentally appropriate, neuroscience aware and trauma sensitive practices, programs and policies.  The NMC has been developed to help parents and carers better understand the complexities of maltreated and traumatized children and to help unify the various adults (therapist, teachers and carers) living and working with these children to create a shared set of expectations and therapeutic, enrichment and educational opportunities.
