Hi everyone, it’s been awhile. The last post I wrote was back in February, “A Challenge to you, Music Therapist.” I’m still really glad I wrote that and glad it’s still being read and shared.
So much has been happening for The Musical Autist this year, and probably like any other 501c3 nonprofit, all very slowly. Sunny and I have brought on some new fantastic people to our Board of Directors. We’ve worked as a group to revamp our vision and mission statement. Everyone has helped the visionary-me get my ideas and abstractions into concrete form, with “strategic plans” and bullet points and all that good stuff.
Now it’s time to GO. Sunny and I are on the road. We kicked off our travels a couple nights ago by attending the City Projections project, a collaboration with film maker Bart O’Reilly and Make Studio to bring public voice to artists with disabilities.
This morning we find ourselves in none other than Atlantic City NJ, guest speakers at ICDL2015 conference (Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning). If you know anything about Stanley Greenspan and DIR Floortime, you will like hearing this news. We were so honored to be offered an honorarium and accommodations provided for this conference, and thrilled because it’s helping us get to AutCom in Manchester NH next week!!
