The Level 1 Equipping Minds Conference* trains educators, parents, therapists, and other specialists in our multi-disciplinary approach, which increases anyone’s capacity to learn. You will be introduced to the theories of Structural Cognitive Modifiability and Mediated Learning, the role of nutrition, neuro-developmental therapy, sound therapy, vestibular therapy, vision therapy, and cognitive developmental therapy. You will be provided with a proven set of exercises in these areas through a hands-on approach. This conference is designed for those who want to implement this program into their school, private practice, learning center, workplace, adult living center, church, orphanage, or home.
