Highlights Training Package, Support and Coaching for 3 months

$6,000

One-time payment
10 Staff + 50 Students

Features

Your team can schedule their course time when it is convenient to them.

The core content of the course typically takes 3 hours to complete.

The course is also loaded with 10 hours of optional content that they can learn on their own time.

After completing the online course, we schedule 3 live training sessions customized to the needs of your team.

Spread of over 3 months, this additional customized training provides a powerful opportunity to deepen your understanding and integration into your classroom.

• The Multisensory Core Protocol: A powerful way to prime the brain for growth

• Gentle Claw + Smell: Bring calm and induce an elevated state of neuroplasticity

• Bead sorting – No vision: develop mental image, a crucial step for self-awareness and social skills

• Finger gym: Example of a protocol for speech apraxia

• Maze in the mirror: Requires the brain to re-learn something simple and grow new connections

• Art – point and say: Pairing a dopamine rush with speech development

In most settings it makes sense to assign one of your team to champion Sensory Enrichment with the others. This person will receive weekly coaching sessions.

6 weeks is usually all it takes for Sensory Enrichment champions to become confident in coaching their peers, but we can extend the coaching where needed.

We never leave you alone. We are partners in this.

There is no extra fee for scheduling additional coaching sessions.

It is in our best interest to train confident and competent educators in bringing improved behavior regulation and academic performance to their students.

It’s like Christmas every month to receive a package filled with Mendability-approved materials to enrich your classroom environment.

There is an extra monthly fee for that service of $40 per classroom.

Full Stimulation Program and Support for 12 months, Customized per Classroom

$12,000

Annual payment
10 staff + 50 students

Features

Our program director will prescribe a set of Sensory Enrichment activities to do with your students, customized to their current levels and needs.

All you need to do is complete a 25-question survey for each special education student in the classroom.

To keep things simple, the program will be customized to the classroom as a whole and you will do the same protocols with all the students.

Where appropriate, we can also prescribe a custom program to individual students.

Every 3 weeks (or 4 weeks depending on your situation) you move on to the next level of programming.

The program is designed to gradually improve your students’ ability to regulate their own behavior and to process and learn abstract concepts like math.

Every time you get new Sensory Enrichment activities for your classroom, we will coach you on:

• the purpose of each protocol,
• how to dial things up or down for each student to optimize brain stimulation,
• what materials you can use in your classroom.

We never leave you alone. We are partners in this.

The best training and coaching happens when we can visit your classrooms and see with our own eyes how your students respond, rather than rely on your descriptions.

There is an additional fee of $1,000 per day + travel expenses ($2,000 within US/CAN).

  • Train you on each set of protocols when it’s time to move on to the next stage of the custom program.
  • Help you track consistency and progress data.

○ Short baseline questionnaire for each student for customization of the program

○ Introduction of the Mendability Minute into all the participating classrooms

○ Start the customized protocols (after two weeks of Mendability Minute)

○ Protocols are updated every 3 to 4 weeks after this

This is not your typical sensory room.

Mendability - Sensory Rooms - Layout Draft 1
The room can accommodate up to 6 students and accompanying professional.

This diagram represents a series of therapy stations that correlate to specific protocols that have been developed and tested by Mendability. Stations are easily adaptable to deliver multiple protocols. 

More than exposing the individual to generic stimuli, Environmental Enrichment Rooms were created and designed by Mendability to trigger the mechanisms of brain plasticity and direct the surge of activity and growth to specific brain functions.

Environmental Enrichment therapy and rooms have been shown in clinical trials to be many times more effective than standard care and standard sensory environment.
