Mendability is not a cure. We don’t aim to change the autistic brain. Our dream is for your child to be able to express their true spontaneous selves, without the burden of feeling overwhelmed.
Sensory Enrichment Therapy is an effective, affordable, evidence-based, clinically-validated program to help living well with autism.
Clinical trials have shown that the majority of parents see improvements in their child’s autism symptoms after 6 months of Sensory Enrichment Therapy.
Parent report improvements in a wide range of issues, such as sleep, behavior, learning, speech development, sensory processing, self-awareness, eating diversification, etc.
The published clinical data shows that Mendability is effective up to the age of 18.
While we have not conducted an IRB clinical trial on adults, the science of brain plasticity suggests that adults may benefit from the program.
And indeed we have anecdotal examples of adults and seniors who have improved while using Sensory Enrichment Therapy.
Mendability is designed as a therapy for autism. However, the principles of Sensory Enrichment Therapy apply to any person interested in boosting their neurological wellness.
For example, our clinical data shows improvements in children with ADHD and Down syndrome as well.
We have seen anecdotal success in using the therapy to help people living with many other conditions, but we have not yet validated these results in randomized controlled trials.
Sensory Enrichment Therapy for autism provides simple, natural sensory experiences. Mendability is completely non-invasive. It does not involve any pharmaceutical products or any other kind of compound.
However, we often get reports from parents during the first few days of the program who indicate temporary inconveniences. We believe these may be related to therapy’s impact on brain plasticity.
Parents describe these first few days as “emotional storms,” with more moodiness, more irritability. In some rare instances, there have been temporary sleep disruptions, and changes in stool consistency. All of these resolved themselves after a few days.
We believe it is normal.
You do the activities with your special person at home.
We will coach you online, or over the phone to make sure you are doing it well.
With our standard coaching plan, you can have as many coaching sessions as you need.
You typically are assigned 4 or 5 activities to do each day. The activities are designed to be done together and in order, as they often build on each other.
In total, enrichment sessions take about 10 minutes each.
We recommend doing two sessions per day, as well as short sensory pairings during the day to support the repair work that was started during the therapy sessions.
The quickest answer is that we complement Occupational Therapy by inducing a state of enhanced plasticity in the brain, which accelerates their work.
There is definitely overlap between Sensory Integration principles and Sensory Enrichment principles. Both acknowledge that there is a wide variety of sensitivities in how signals from the environment are processed.
One important thing that OT’s have that we don’t is a library of exercises that can soothe the sensory system quickly and help fill a need of a person to be stimulated or to have the stimulation lowered.
At Mendability, we focus on helping the brain learn how to process the environment more normally so as not to have these needs, but it is very useful to be able to satisfy these short term needs immediately.
While most parents are reporting visible changes in their family member after just a few weeks of therapy, we recommend 6 months as the minimum duration for results to “stick.”
For some people 6 months is all you need. You can keep working on your brain health with Sensory Enrichment as long as you want.
Collaboration with your child is one of the keys to success with Mendability. If your child loves baseball, use baseball images. If your child does not like the smell of lavender, try a citrus scent. The goal is to work with your child until Mendability is as engaging as it can be.
We know that life happens and we developed the program with real life in mind.
Mendability is designed to be short, fun and enjoyable to do. It’s OK to miss exercises here and there. We’re in this for the long run.
Our advice is to act as you typically would in a situation where your child does not want to cooperate. There is not one solution that works for every child. Patience will be essential, and it will be beneficial for you to read the advice given for each exercise and understand the minimum performance needed to get benefit from each exercise. These exercises are learning exercises and may take time to adjust to.
In all cases, patience, love and understanding are your keys. A useful piece of advice is to discuss the benefits of the therapy with your child even understand what you are saying.
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, “Did he just do what I think he did?”
For improvements to stick we recommend that you do the program for at least 3 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. Most individuals should expect to be doing this program for at least a year.
Mendability is not currently covered by insurance. All clients who wish to participate in the therapy will be responsible for the monthly cost.
Anywhere there is an internet connection.
We offer a 30-day guarantee. If you feel for any reason that Mendability is not for you during your first month, simply let us know and we will cancel your account and refund 100% of your payment.
