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 Bal-A-Vis-X team

FACT: The maximum training provided by the latter is 17 hours total. Bill is the only one who provides all three training sessions: the 17-hour, 20-hour, 24 hour.

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.
