Neurosequential Model for Education (NME)
Many of Sturgeon Public School's schools and staff are engaged in the work of the Neurosequential Model for Education (NME) developed by Dr. Bruce Perry. This model helps support our children who struggle with social/ emotional and behavioral challenges. Building on Positive Behavior Supports and Collaborative Problem Solving, NME provides another layer of understanding of challenging behaviors, state dependent learning, and offers strategies for building healthy and resilient children. In bringing together the best understandings of brain research, the impact of childhood trauma, and best instructional practices for behavioral support, our schools are building classrooms where the impact of disabilities are significantly lessened and our children are ready and able to learn.
