Bal-A-Vis-X Practitioners and Trainers  

Fact: Anyone who completes one of our trainings is immediately ready, and encouraged, to use BAVX with her own children or students or clients--with anyone who might benefit from these exercises. A teacher may introduce BAVX into her classroom. A therapist may augment her range of other modalities with BAVX. If you have taken our training, you may use BAVX with anyone.

But you may not

* refer to yourself as "certified" in BAVX
* promote yourself as a BAVX Practitioner or Trainer
* provide hands-on demonstrations of BAVX
* "train" colleagues or employees in BAVX
(Note: an OT or PT may show an assistant or co-teacher a single exercise to be used in therapist's absence)
* present hands-on BAVX for academic credit
* charge a fee for using BAVX
(Note: a therapist with a private practice naturally charges for her regular sessions so adding BAVX to her sessions is not charging specifically for BAVX // a teacher with a private tutorial service naturally charges for tutoring so infusing BAVX into her tutorials is not charging specifically for BAVX)

Fact: A Bal-A-Vis-X Practitioner may charge for private BAVX sessions. The charge is for both expertise and time. As well, a Practitioner may charge for supporting / overseeing / evaluating other adults in their use of BAVX, such as in classrooms, therapy sites, retirement facilities, or with parents in private homes.

Fact: A Bal-A-Vis-X Trainer may conduct trainings up to 16 hours in length and may charge accordingly. (Stipulations apply. The Trainers know of these stipulations and will make them known as necessary.)

Fact: No "certification" process to become a Bal-A-Vis-X Practitioner or Trainer exists. The Practitioners and/or Trainers listed below did not ask to join our team of Practitioners / Trainers. Rather, I invited them. Of the more than 11,000 adults we have trained world-wide, these few people have the following in common:

A) each has taught / worked with children at least 15 years
B) each has known me personally at least 5 years
C) each has taken all levels of BAVX training at least 12 times
D) each has used BAVX regularly with children at least 5 years
E) each has demonstrated that (s)he shares my vision for the future of Bal-A-Vis-X
F) each has been invited by me personally to become part of our BAVX team

FACT: You may receive BAVX training from Bill and his personal Assistant Instructors OR from those listed below as Trainers. The maximum training provided by the latter is 16 hours total. Bill is the only one who provides all 17-hour or 20-hour or 23-hour trainings.

Fact: No reduced ("repeater's") registration fee exists. Each training is unique. No training is simply a "review."

Fact: No one may attend a partial training. No one may skip Level 1 because it has been taken previously. Each training is All or Nothing.

Fact: Except for the special 8-hour preschool session, no 1-day BAVX training exists. No 3-hour or 6-hour mini-training exists. No shortened "BAVX Basics" training exists. No 3-hour BAVX inservice exists.
