The first few weeks of the therapy are in most cases characterized by what many parents call “emotional storms”. If your child experiences unusual emotional responses, it is because Mendability is working.
You will be able to see your child’s progress on a graph on your home page. This progress chart is intended to help you keep track of your child’s changes and new capabilities.
Sometimes, your child’s improved ability to do an exercise will show you that he/she has improved in one area. Many times, you will find yourself asking someone else, “Did he just do what I think he did?”
For improvements to stick we recommend that you do the program for at least 6 months. For most parents what tends to happen first is improvement in the areas of awareness, attention, sensory processing, communication and social skills. Parents seem to report that cognitive abilities, motor abilities, etc happen later in the program, after 6 months of therapy.
This is not a quick fix. Nothing really is. You should expect to be doing this program for at least a year.
Then, when we reach a point where many of the troubling symptoms have mostly gone, you may want to ask yourself: “What can we work on next?” No-one knows where the limit is for how much more brain you can have.
