Free Webinar for Parents and Special Educators:
Wednesday Aug. 11th, 2 – 3 pm
(Mountain Time – Check your timezone)
Anxiety brings a sense of doom to a person, with or without developmental delay. They feel constantly exhausted.
Both teachers and students will have to adjust to the school environment this fall. Mendability, will be providing some tips on how to make this transition easier for both parties.
Teachers will be facing kids who have been learning over zoom for the past year, and for some of them learning from the comfort of their home has been easier in comparison to the school setting (especially for kids on the spectrum since they feel safer and less overwhelmed when they are home).
There are Sensory Enrichment solutions for these issues. For example, having less busy walls in classrooms, can help reduce overload.
Parents want to understand what their child is experiencing internally and to help them feel better. If Sensory Enrichment activities can be done every day at home and at school, over time, the child’s emotional resilience, dealing with transitions and managing stress and overload will increase and stay that way.
For parents we will cover:
- Understanding what your child is experiencing and how to comfort them
- Sensory enrichment strategies to help them feel more relaxed(at home or at school)
- Do’s and Don’ts when helping a child on the spectrum regulate their emotions
For special educators we will cover:
- Decreasing the gap between the online-at home experience and the classroom experience
- Providing a calmer classroom environment to make the transition easier
- Reducing the pressure of performance and expectations within the school environment
We will be sure to cover the different needs of children who are:
- Sensory seekers
- Sensory avoiders
- Non-verbal students

Mendability is a telehealth program focused on the well-being of the brain.
We use sensory enrichment to stimulate the human brain and enable it to treat itself. This happens when the brain creates better connections to replace the ones it didn’t develop or has lost.
