The Level 1 & 2 Equipping Minds Conference trains educators, parents, therapists, and other specialists in our multi-disciplinary approach to cognitive training which increases anyone’s capacity to learn. You can receive PD and CEU credits as well as certification. If you are unable to join us in person, the online course will be interactive and engaging. You will receive the 2018 Equipping Minds Cognitive Development Curriculum (teacher workbook) and the student workbook. You will have access to the sessions for one year. If you are not able to join us in person, you can purchase the online course or USB recording and watch it at your own pace. LIMITED IN PERSON SPOTS. MEALS ARE PROVIDED FOR LUNCH AND DINNER.
You will be introduced to the theories of neuroplasticity, the role of nutrition, neuro-developmental and primitive reflex 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, treatment center, church, orphanage, or home. 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 if you cannot join us in person.
