One Day Seminars

Our 8th FREE One-Day Seminar in Peoria, Illinois, hosted by HOIDSA on October 27, 2012, was fabulous!

The 7th FREE Seminar in Pocatello, Idaho on June 23rd

Was Amazing!!!

 We think this may be the first seminar where every person that attended seemed excited and ready to start their child on the CMF protocol right away.  In fact, we have received many emails sharing details of some positive results they are already seeing in their children. We had 2 MD's in the audience, which meant a few more scientific questions for Teresa.  We had lots of good discussion as Teresa presented the science behind the protocol.  A few families brought their kids in to meet with Joanne after the seminar was over, and they talked of having her back to work with their children in the future.  Our hosts: Maria Neumann and Jodi Williamson, who are the officers from Southeast Idaho DS Support Group, were very generous with their time and money.  They paid all of CMF's travel expenses, which we greatly appreciate, and drove us around all weekend.  We couldn't have asked for more gracious and caring hosts! 

Our 6th FREE Seminar in Baltimore, Maryland,

on April 28, 2012 was fun and informative!

Attendees came from the local area, and as far as Buffalo, New York.  Two of the ladies were presidents of their local DS associations, and will report the information learned back to their groups.  One participant gave a glowing testimonial! After taking ginkgo for 5 days, her 12 year old daughter learned 15 sight words in one day.  The teacher was astounded and wrote a note home asking what had changed.

If you were unable to attend, make plans to come to Pocatello, ID in June.

Our 5th FREE Seminar in Tucson, Arizona on January 21, 2012, was very successful!!

  Some parents left that day committed to starting their child on the protocol right away.  Our hosts were Greg and Christine DeSilva, CMF parents of Gregory, age 22 months.  Gregory has been on the CMF protocol since he was 4 months, starting one item at a time and on the complete protocol by 10 months of age.  Teresa explained all the items in the protocol and answered questions and concerns from parents.  Joanne told about her students and met many families in Tucson and Phoenix that are interested in having her come back and tutor their children.  Greg DeSilva also spoke and shared the changing perspectives  of Down syndrome through the years, and then he told us about some of the successes of his son Gregory on the CMF protocol.

Our 4th FREE Seminar in Orlando, FL, on November 12th, went very well!!

The event was hosted by the Down Syndrome Foundation of Florida, and they were wonderful hosts!  Teresa and Joanne spoke to a full house at Orlando Regional Medical Center and answered

many questions regarding the CMF protocol.  Teresa explained some of the science and went over each item in the protocol.  Joanne told about the children she tutors and explained the differences she saw in those on the protocol.  One of our CMF parents, Andi Durkin, spoke about her son Jett (19 mos.) and how well he is doing since starting the CMF protocol.

Dr. Teresa Cody spoke at the DSAH, Down Syndrome Association of Houston, about the Changing Minds protocol and explained each item and the science behind it.  It was a tremendous success!  The room was packed and lots of questions were answered. If you haven't heard Teresa speak, make plans to attend our next seminar in Orlando, FL.  We have added two new items to the existing protocol as well, so even if you've heard Teresa before, you can come and find out what's new.       

Our 3rd FREE Seminar on

June 25th in Evansville, Indiana,

was a big success!

The event was hosted by SMILE On Down Syndrome, a local parent network in Indiana.  They were very hospitable and paid all our expenses!  Dr. Teresa Cody spoke on the CMF protocol and gave a detailed explanation of the science behind it.  She answered questions from parents, medical personnel and educators.  We did a shorter version, a half day seminar, and ran out of time.  So, we are mailing copies of Joanne's video to those who attended.  We also heard from Miriam Kauk, a CMF parent.  She spoke about her 18 year old daughter, Mary, who has been on portions of the protocol since 2008 and is doing amazingly well!
