NRF - NeuroRelational Framework
The NRF is a body-brain-based approach to assessment and intervention for early development. Three core concepts about brain development inform the NRF’s three steps: the Grounded Roots, the Supportive Trunk, the Integrated Branches.
- Neuro = references the focus on understanding principles of brain development
- Relational = references the significance of relationships and their impact on healing
- Framework = references the NRF as both an assessment and intervention practice guiding the use of promising and evidence-based practices, so treatments better match neurodevelopmental needs
