How the Mandt System Works


The Mandt System’s concepts and training circle the globe. Our work has an international reach that intersects schools, their staff, and the students with whom they communicate. However, our mission stays the same regardless of place: putting people first and supporting others—not just their behaviors.

Helping Schools

"The Mandt System ® is a great program!
The staff of The Mandt System ® are extremely knowledgeable and keep up with current information in the field.. It has helped our districts tremendously in building positive relationships and keeping people safe"

Cynthia E.
Franklin County Special Education, MO

"We rarely have to use a restraint on any of our students. In fact, we would only use one in an effort to keep a student safe or from injuring themselves or others. We have found Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) to work extremely well with our population who have autism. The Mandt System ® and its philosophy seems to go very well with ABA practices"

Ronald M.
Lansing School District, KS

"This system is the first one that I’ve used that really addresses the relationship with parents/students."

Patrick G.
Centra-Rivermont Schools,VA

"The focus of The Mandt System ® is about building healthy relationships with our students. The goal is to keep students from reaching the crisis phase, however, when it does happen, restraint is the last option and is used only when the safety of the person and/or others is at risk. I’ve had certain teachers within my school say that Mandt won’t work for "their type of student" however, I’ve been able to use what I’ve learned in Mandt (without restraint) specifically for those students with success. Mandt is about making our students feel safe and secure while always showing dignity and respect."
