Living with autism: two programs, one heart

Elaine Hall

Two weeks ago, we had the pleasure of experiencing first hand each other's nonprofit organizations. As the L.A.-based The Miracle Project expanded to New York and the N.Y.-based Music for Autism expanded to L.A., we were immediately struck by the shared motivations and core values of our programs.

Music for Autism aims to improve quality of life for those with autism and their families by organizing fully subsidized, interactive concerts with extraordinary professional musicians. As long as no one or no instrument gets hurt, all reactions to the live music are welcome by concert participants with autism who are guided by exceptional volunteers to conduct the musicians and play along with percussion instruments to the live music they experience. Similarly creating a world that does not judge, The Miracle Project is an acting, music and art program for children with special needs that taps into the sometimes hidden talents and potential of those in this community and culminates in live performances of original works by its participants, their typically developing siblings and committed volunteers. Shy children come out of their shells; overzealous children become part of a group. Through shared experiences a dynamic, creative community is built.

As a parent of a child with autism, I am used to being on guard for behaviors which require me to remove Connor from situations. At the Music for Autism concert, I didn't have to do this... Connor was allowed, encouraged even to express himself, and I was able to relax at a public event for the first time in five years." Through The Miracle Project and Music for Autism, we aim to create a capsule of love that we wish all of society would emulate for all those marginalized like the populations we serve.

It is Mother Theresa's comment on doing good in the world that has pr...
