Did you miss the annual conference? You can now participate in the online course and watch at your own pace or purchase a USB of the recordings. You can still become certified after watching the course. You will then set up a meeting with Dr. Brown for a competency assessment.
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 neuroplasticity, 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. With families and schools moving to online learning this week, this is a crucial time to equip more parents, therapists, and educators in Equipping Minds. Having the conference online is an excellent way to train you.

My staff and I participated in the Equipping Minds ONLINE Conference and found it extremely rewarding because it was easy to follow, understand and participate although we were not physically present. An added benefit was the extended access to the recording which enabled us to review any aspect of the training which needed reinforcement. I highly recommend ONLINE as a viable option given our current restrictions.

“I just want to say a big thank you for the wonderful conference! I started implementing some of new things I learned at 7:30 this morning with my first student! The seemingly infinite mutations of each exercise keep the program new and exciting. Was it you who said that our minds love variety? This is a huge difference between Equipping Minds and other programs. I always felt like a rebel! You have not only given us very powerful tools, but you have also given us the freedom and vision to keep pushing the envelope while we love and enjoy each student. Thank you, thank you for such inspiration! Also, thank you for your graciousness. I believe you connected with everyone there, spoke to each, always had a listening ear, and even gave extra time and attention to us when you were beyond exhausted. Thank you for sharing your God given gifts with us so freely!”
