This course is to obtain Sensory Enrichment Therapy certification for professionals with a background and education in therapy including prerequisite knowledge of neurobiology.
The student will learn about the core theory of brain function, brain plasticity, and environmental enrichment, as well as the therapeutic implementation of the scientific principles to give improvements in therapy recipients who may suffer from developmental delays or disorders.
Financial disclosure: Mendability developed Sensory Enrichment Therapy as a translation of protocols used in the field of Environmental Enrichment and this online certification course.
We translated the protocols used in the animal laboratories that boosted brain development into hands on activities that can be implemented safely in the home. We created the online platform and the tools described in the course to help families implement Sensory Enrichment Therapy in their home.
When you complete this course you will have the option to enrol in our professional directory and to register for a Mendability Pro account. The Pro account is free and we also give you a sample client profile to practice with. If you would like to implement this modality with your clients, you can invite them to create an account on our platform. You will have the option of inviting them to pay for their Mendability license, or of paying for their license fee yourself.
