I hope you are not suggesting that to work in the field of education does
not require any special knowledge. Obviously the NFB training courses must
include a heavy educational component if non-teachers are ever to be allowed
near learning disabled children. The very idea of non-qualified therapists
worling with vunerable children is horrifying.

yes, i absolutely agree with you that there has to be common ground
concerning nf education. as soon as it comes to treatment of patients, i
also agree that there have to be set standards and specific diplomas/degrees
for nf-therapists must be required. still i think that in the educational
field and in the field of peak-performance, there is room for
nf-practitioners having other backgrounds. in these areas, i don't quite see
a point (which you might not make...) in having prerequisits, like
university diplomas, etc. to actually start with the nf-education, which may
be provided by san.
so i see quite an advantage in forming different groups of practitioners
within san as has been suggested before.
