Melody of Autism!!

So much to learn! So much to share!! I've decided to host an autism awareness event and fundraiser. I don't want to scare people about the rising numbers of diagnoses and the tragedy of a one size fist all approach, or anything like that. I just want to celebrate and encourage others to do the same. So much more happens when we can find joy.

So, more details to follow, but the event is called the Melody of Autism, on April 18th, 3:30pm in the NE Bronx (972 E 227th Street, Bronx, NY 10466). We will have celebrations in song, dance, instrumental and poetry, as well as commentary from parents and others who have worked with children on the spectrum. We are putting together a wonderful resource booklet and we even have a dream gate prize: a $250 gift certificate to Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa (they have an amazing spa! The hot stones we wonderful!!). Contribution will be $20 at the door. I will post flyers and location details very soon. I hope to see you celebrating with us!!! Tell your friends!
