CONNECTION WITH MUSIC


Connection with sound, rhythm and music was my child's thing every day which was all but lost after I pushed my child into school. Three years was all it took to kill their magic for music, nearly ourselves and instil deep-seated trauma which we are still recovering from today.

My child's trauma and autodidactic neurology guided us away from the dominating, overruling (adult knows best and everything) approach to learning and toward my child mastering their study skill through leading their learning about the things THEY are curious and passionate about.

Finding someone (after taking my child out of the education system) who can come to our home and connect with a traumatised autodidactic learner like my child had been unsuccessful until this year.

This incredible human, jams with my child, together creating their own sound, without any traditional approach. As trust grows respecting my child's lead we slowly witness my child tapping into their inner musical presence and gift.

Together these two souls have a language through music that fills the house and their beings with effervescent energy, joy and magic. My child creates brilliantly when I'm out of their way.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT

TRADITIONAL OWNERS

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

OUR AUTISTIC/NEURODIVERGENT CULTURE

​We acknowledge our LBGTIQ2KA+kin autistic/neurodivergent humans.

 

We use identity-first language, "I am autistic", opposed to "I'm a person with autism", reflecting Autism at the core of our identity, that Autism is a Spectrum, a part of neurodivergence and not a disorder. We radically embrace and celebrate neurodivergence.

 

Authoritarian and conforming learning and approaches such as ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis, treatment or cures, ableism or functioning labels are harmful to both FAN and their child neurodivergent neurologies.

 

AFFILIATED DISCLAIMER

 

ROARHEART™ makes no recommendations nor has any opinions about or is responsible for the content or deficit language of neurodivergence on sites and links that are external to ROARHEART™. The language that describes neurodivergent neurologies and life experiences as disordered, defective or that to be "fixed, changed and cured" is offensive and harmful to FAN and their child.

It is strongly recommended that medical, psychiatric and other therapeutic advice or treatment can only be given by suitably trained and accredited professionals. ROARHEART™ is not a substitute either inferred or directly to replace any form of treatment participants are currently engaged in. We further suggest that prior to making any changes to current treatment participants discuss this with the practitioner that prescribed the treatment or at least get a second opinion from a suitably qualified and accredited clinician. We cannot do this we are not qualified.
