How does Mente help the children who use it and their families? See what parents, teachers and medical professionals have to say about this medical device and how it changed the users’ lives.

In people with autism, the delta brainwaves - which are associated with sleep and closed eyes - peak constantly, even when they are awake, isolating them in their own world. Mente uses an auditory system to suppress these waves.Dr. Adrian Attard Trevisan, Founder & CEO, AAT Research

“Ashwaq displays symptoms such as poor eye contact and concentration, and most of the time she doesn’t respond to her name. Our centre therefore started to apply Mente therapy, inviting her to daily sessions. During her first semester, she did not attend regularly, partly because there were too many days off for celebration at the time, which disrupted her schedule.After she used Mente for 10 consecutive sessions, we noticed that Ashwaq started giving eye contact; she started watching TV and looking at her mother. We asked the family whether there had been any changes to Ashwaq’s daily life (apart from Mente) such as any changes to diet, therapy or medication and the mother replied that there had been no such changes at all. The mother also remarked that she had noticed improvements in Ashwaq’s eye contact and attentiveness. This is very encouraging in so short a time, and we are carefully monitoring Ashwaq’s progress as she continues to use Mente.”
“My daughter, Jade, 4 years of age, has been using Mente for well over a month now. As early as a week and half into starting her daily therapy sessions, I could personally experience the gradual and positive effect Mente had on my child. Her communication skills have increased exponentially as I am able to reach her, now more than ever. At first, it was hard to get the therapy to fit into her routine, but after she grew accustomed to it, I was surprised that she started requesting the daily sessions herself. She has since been able to be more receptive, able to communicate more with others and initiate interaction on her own. She has become more creative, more sociable and able to maintain role-play games with ease. Even her teachers and school administrators have observed her radical change in behaviour and have themselves remarked on this on several different occasions.”

“I am a pre-school teacher, currently teaching a kindergarten class of 4-year-old children. Among my students, I have the pleasure of taking care of a wonderful and highly interesting child with autism, Jade. Early on, I was informed by her mother that Jade was making daily use of Mente prior to attending school. For the past 8 weeks, the mother’s excitement and enthusiasm rubbed off on me and together we witnessed first-hand Jade’s significant improvements. Merely two weeks after introducing the Mente therapy, Jade was more communicative with us teachers and her classmates, more independent and less prone to emotional meltdowns. In fact, before using the therapy, she would grab hold to her mother and wouldn’t allow her to leave the school in the morning. When her mother eventually left, Jade was often unmanageable, due to random emotional outbreaks followed by lack of communication and comprehension, and restlessness. This all changed within the past 8 weeks as Jade has taken great strides forward, behavior- and education-wise, bringing her up to par with the top-performing students in my class. Not only that, now Jade is extremely comfortable with her mother leaving: She remains seated and calmly waves goodbye, saying “Goodbye Mum, I’ll see you later” and blowing her a kiss.”
“I introduced Mente to my 9-year old autistic son two years ago. Within the first month, we observed very gradual improvements in his behaviour. After a month and a half, my son became more talkative and more inclined to engage with others – and with me. Honestly, it was a breath of fresh air to hear my estranged and scarcely verbal son become considerably more expressive and ever-more reachable. Essentially, I was experiencing a new person. About 3 months in, my husband and I wanted to test whether the changes we saw were directly attributed to the Mente therapy or otherwise unrelated – so we chose to stop the using Mente altogether for a short period of time and observe how our son would react. Almost immediately my son regressed and after a month of stopping Mente, we wholeheartedly returned to doing the daily therapy sessions – and we haven’t stopped since.”

Parent of 11-year-old girl PDD/ 6 months’ usage / 7 May 2013
“My daughter is 11 years old and she has PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder). We have been using the MenteTM for 5 months now and we have not had any problems to date. Actually, our daughter really likes it. We have also noticed that she is doing better at school. I have already recommended the MenteTM to others because we really saw a change in her.”
“My son is 8 years old and he is on the Autism Spectrum. We decided to give MenteTM a try. Although we had to wait a month to see the first changes, now we are noticing that he is paying much more attention and his vocabulary has increased a lot in a short time. He is also trying to experiment with and taste new foods. His teacher, who was unaware that he is using MenteTM , commented on these things as she noticed the changes too.”

“My daughter is 6 years old and has ASD. After one week of using the device, she was more present and aware of her surroundings, showed affection, was calmer, had a better attention span, and showed traces of pretend play.”
