"It takes many years
for a brain to fully develop,
however, it is the positive early experiences 
that are invaluable to developing a brain 
that allows the unique essence of a child to shine."

-Deborah McNelis

Hello, I am Deborah McNelis, M.Ed, and am very proud to be the founder of Brain Insights. It is a true passion of mine to share insights to inspire people toward having a positive impact in the lives of children. Simplifying the understanding of early childhood brain development so that people clearly understand and gain confidence in their interactions with children is one of the ways I have been most effective at making a difference. It is incredibly heartwarming to see the aha moments take place as people grasp how they can easily make an impact in the lives of children. 

With my trademarked Neuro-Nurturing® model, I help people understand basic aspects of early brain development in an extremely clear way. And the unique products I have created for each age from newborn through age five, reveal just how easy it is to nurture the brain through simple activities in everyday life at home, in an early childhood classroom or childcare setting.  

Nearly 100,000 of the Neuro-Nurturing® Interaction series and Naturally Developing Young Brains packets in English and Spanish are benefiting families in numerous countries. I also collaborate with Redleaf Press publishers to create this series of resources for early education professionals. Four additional packets are available through Redleaf Press to support transitions with a brain development focus, and balancing stimulation so the brains of children are not over or under stimulated.  

My work can be seen regularly in a wide range of media platforms including radio shows, podcasts, webinars, books, and magazines. I travel throughout the US and internationally doing presentations and keynotes for professional conferences. I also conduct professional development trainings and have provided corporate workshops for companies such as Kohl’s and Kimberly Clark. And now, Creating Great Connections for communities has been designed for spreading the message that nurturing early brain development makes an incredibly valuable preventive impact on learning, health and overall well-being.

Numerous people say that my passion is contagious and motivates them to want to share insights with everyone they know. This fills my heart with joy because that means continuously increasing numbers of children will benefit from the Neuro-Nurturing they need and deserve ... and the understanding will finally become common knowledge!
