NMT Assessment Pathway

As a service, our approach to assessment is firmly embedded in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics. The NMT assessment is designed to provide a neurodevelopmental framework that compliments findings from other assessments and ensures that all clinical information is organised in a developmentally sensitive and biologically respectful way.  One of the key advantages of the NMT assessment is it helps to shed light on the neuro developmental impacts of early life adversity, trauma and neglect on specific brain-related skills from the brainstem through the cortex. 

This information is organised in specific ways which helps us:

  • Create a unique brain map for each individual
  • Develop a treatment plan that integrates what we know about how the brain changes
  • Guide the selection and sequencing of therapeutic activities within the context of a therapeutic web of recommendations

The NMT assessment is helpful for professionals when:

  • A child or young person has complex and multiple needs that are difficult to understand
  • Therapeutic interventions are no longer effective or achieving sustainable change
  • The caregiving challenge and the therapeutic needs of parents are not fully understood

In sum, the NMT assessment helps us build a therapeutic web of understanding around the needs of the whole family, supports knowing when and how to sequence therapeutic interventions and helps professionals to look through the lens of neurodevelopment.

What the NMT assessment involves

Before commencing this piece of work, we generally request that you send us key background information including previous assessments already completed by other professionals.  We will send out an NMT questionnaire which is specifically designed to gather key information across different developmental time periods from early childhood through to present age. Typically, the NMT assessment often sits alongside our Therapeutic Needs Assessment. We would also incorporate other psychological tests for screening purposes as well as our NME assessment which produces a mini brain map for schools.

In summary, there are three primary stages to an NMT assessment:

  1. Building a detailed developmental history from early childhood onwards.
  2. Creating a unique brain map identifying the unfolding impacts of early life experiences of adversity and history of relational health on the developing brain.
  3. Formulating a developmentally sensitive treatment plan that guides the selection and sequencing of capacity building and resource enhancing therapeutic experiences.

The time frame for the NMT assessment varies depending on the complexity of each individual case.  From commencement of assessment through to completion of the report may take anything between 8-12 weeks.

What happens next?

A therapeutic consultation meeting is arranged for us to share our recommendations which will include:

  • A unique brain map
  • A detailed daily plan of brain-boosting therapeutic activities
  • How to select and sequence therapeutic activities
  • Working together to get the therapeutic ‘dose’ of activities/intervention just right
  • A plan on how we can build a web of therapeutic care and support

How do we review change?

Generally, therapeutic progress is continually reviewed throughout each piece of work.  We like to review therapeutic change in three ways:

  1. Generating a follow-up brain map which gives us a visual comparison of functional changes across all brain systems.
  2. Refining pacing and sequencing of daily therapeutic activities.
  3. Revising the therapeutic web – i.e. the therapeutic team of support around a child, young person or adult.
