What is a Neuro-relational Approach?
July 9, 2018
If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.
-Abraham Lincoln

Gina Lebedeva, writing in Cultivating Curriculum in Early Childhood Organizations, part of the Art of Leadership series, explains that the neuro-relational approach to children’s learning is “not a new concept, but a refreshed approach.” She explains that:

"We begin with two basic assumptions that are likely familiar to practitioners already:

  • Experience, not simple maturation, changes the brain (neuro).
  • All learning happens in the context of relationships (relational).

These two foundational themes are not new in themselves, but the recognition that they are inextricably intertwined is fortunately experiencing renewed attention and awareness. In short, it is the idea that the brain is an organ that is modified, in complex and interactive ways, by relational experiences with others."
