[Autism Society of Southern Arizona] Summer Camp Feedback Request

With summer approaching, I'm sure a lot of us are looking into camps for our school aged kiddos. Does anyone have any experience with these two summer day camps:
  • Desert Horizons Communities 
  • Achieve (Builds Confidence ?)
Does anyone have any other recommendations?  

Thank you in advance for any guidance or feedback you can provide.

[Autism Society of Southern Arizona] Open letter to Odell Borg, High Spirits Flutes and in Invitation to you

The attached emails and accompanying video were sent to Odell Borg, Owner of High Spirits Flutes who is working with us to place performance-quality handmade flutes in the hands of students of autism and other disabilities to inspire and bring musical expression to life.  We need friends of music to create social experiences through natural environment gatherings that teach natural environment skills.  You can contact me for more information and if you or your student would like to begin lessons and make music together with others.  My contact information is below. - Gale Quackenbush

Hi Odell and company,

After our discussion about using video to present the Native American Flute experience to individuals and families with autism, the idea was confirmed by some of my students and families.  I had one young man in mind especially since he has been studying with me for awhile both Native American Flute and now recorder.  Jesse has autism and is gifted in many areas not the least of which is his sense of humor.  His main area of interest centers around acoustical engineering.  For instance, Jesse looks for specific recording labels and pressings on the vinyl he collects and can tell you how and when the labels changed and the mono to stereo processes developed and were used by various studios both nationally and internationally.  Our lessons were being audio-taped from the beginning by his own initiative.  Last year, we performed at the Tucson Botanical Gardens during their holiday Luminiaria Nights event as guests of Desert Spirits Native American Flute Choir.  We passed out percussion instruments for participants to join in song on our NAF rendition of "Hanukkah, O Hanukkah" and performed "Beneath the Raven Moon" written and performed by Mary Youngblood, from her Grammy-award winning album of the same name.  It is a mission for me in my work to bring the joy of music-making, and of course the beauty and growing versatility of the native american flute, to our disability community.   The joy of music and group music-making is a gift that life gives to all of us and should not be denied to anyone.  I truly appreciate from the bottom of my heart the kind support of High Spirits Flutes in helping us make this a reality in Tucson and beyond. 

Sincerely,

[Autism Society of Southern Arizona] Therapy question

Good Morning,

i was hoping that someone can guide me into the google group or forward my question to other users and/or anyone there could give feedback on my question.

currently we have 2 boys under the spectrum. One got denied for ABA while the other currently is qualified but agencies either do not have Hab workers available for our area or there's a waiting list. It seems to be the same situation for private insurance as well.

Question: Because of the shortage of ABA/IBT habilitation experts around town (Tucson), what is everyone else doing for therapies while on the "waiting list" to be seen/scheduled besides OT and SLP?

Thank you for any input on this subject.
Tony Martinez

[Autism Society of Southern Arizona] Re: Native American Flute Lessons and Groups

HELLO THERE.  We now have two flute students playing in the New Year.  So far one 17 year old and one 14 year old.  I would love to round out the group, get more students started and working towards group music-making.  All the information is below.   Hand Drum is also an option for those not drawn to flute and would be a great addition to a music making circle! 

 HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

Native American Flute (NAF) Lessons? (starting in January 2016)
  • Easier to play than the recorder and is a good starter to explore the recorder and other instruments.  No back thumb hole, Uses a pentatonic or other scale.
  • Feelings can be explored using this instrument originally created for natural,  expressive outlet.
  • Makes learning fun while complementing speech therapy, functional skill/OT objectives
  • A lot of traditional tunes have been adapted for NAF.  It is a also just a great accompaniment to other voices or instruments in only learning a few notes.
  • GROUP SESSIONS are included for free.  Most likely may meet at the Himmel Park Library. Flexible to other locations.   
  • Flutes can purchased by me for $50 through arrangement with the maker, Odell Borg of High Spirits Flutes in Patagonia. 
  • Lessons begin at $35 depending on a number of factors, one of which is more than one student in your area or taking lessons in my home. 
  • It is a great folk instrument for exploring music and cultural connections locally and all over the world.  Can be included to enrich Dept of Ed Standards in most subject areas
