FYI, members of the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver are promoting the idea of having the war resisters' monument at their Church in Vancouver. Originally proposed to be erected in Nelson, B.C., it was decided that while the Our Way Home Reunion project (http://www.ourwayhomereunion.com/) will go ahead as planned, the monument would likely be erected elsewhere.  The Vancouver location is not a fait accompli by any means at this time, just some seeding to see if it will take root.  To read the article and view the proposed monument, go to http://www.vancouver.unitarians.ca    then click on "Who we are" then on "Monthly Bulletin"  and click on June issue.  Scroll to page 7.

Read the CLBC Business Plan for 2005 and weep!  
http://www.communitylivingbc.ca/whatsnew.htm#june15 Our worst fears are being realized in terms of this being the "Do it yourself" model. And all of a sudden, it's not just the adults at risk but all of kids' services (including autism!).

A thoroughly absorbing portrait of one man's discipline and commitment --
and, yes, spiritual transformation... Quite simply, a beautiful film, in both form and content. You'll laugh. You'll cry. And your heart is guaranteed to soar."
- Ann Hornaday, WASHINGTON POST

The true story of a Bohemian St. Francis and his remarkable relationship with a flock of wild red-and-green parrots. Mark Bittner, a former street musician in San Francisco, falls in love with the flock as he searches for meaning in his life, unaware that the wild parrots will bring him everything he needs.

More about Prison Justice Day -- August 10th.

August 10th is a day set aside each year when prisoners and supporters
gather to honour the memory of the men and women who have died unnatural
deaths inside of Canadian prisons. On August 10th, 1974, Eddie Nalon bled
to death in a solitary confinement unit at Millhaven Maximum Security
Prison near Kingston, Ontario, when the emergency call button in his cell
failed to work. An inquest into his death found that the call buttons in
unit had been deactivated by the guards. Following the death of another
prisoner in 1976, in that same unit, it was discovered that the call
buttons had not been repaired. Prisoners mark the anniversary of these
deaths by fasting and refusing to work.

What started as a one time event behind the walls of one prison has become
a national day of solidarity. On this day, prisoners  across the country
fast, refuse to work, and remain in their cells, while supporters organize
community events to draw attention to the conditions inside of prisons.

Prisoner deaths from murder, suicide, and neglect, can and must be prevented.

12.  ACT - AUTISM COMMUNITY TRAINING

Early Registration Deadline - July 15th, 2005

- limited capacity - back by popular request -

ACT - Autism Community Training presents

SMILE - Structured Methods in Language Education

Thursday, September 29 & Friday, September 30, 2005
9:00 AM ? 3:30 PM
Room 2945, Harbour Centre Campus
Simon Fraser University
515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC

Conducted by

Enid G. Wolf-Schein, Ed.D., CCC-SLP
Adjunct Professor, University of Alberta

What is SMILE?

SMILE is a systematic, multisensory communication develop ment program that engages children as they progress through basic attending, phonemic awareness and sound?letter knowledge to the use of language in a descriptive and conversational manner. SMILE is a method of teaching speech, reading and writing to children with severe language and communication delays. It begins with phonemes (the building blocks of speech) and progresses to the development of short stories. It also incorporates development of attention, specific and consistent teaching methodology, use of structure, routine and immediate reinforcement. Ongoing attention to generalization ensures that the pupil does not end up with a series of splinter skills that are not functional. SMILE is based on the Association Method, which uses a combination of visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic associations.

Who Should Attend this Workshop?

ACT has brought back Dr. Wolf-Schein because of the very positive response to her initial ACT workshop held in May 2004. Teachers, speech pathologists, educational assistants and parents have reported that SMILE is an effective low-tech, multisensory methodology that can be individualized for children and teenagers who are speaking or reading very little or not at all. It can be easily adapted for students who are using an ABA approach in their early intervention program to encourage them to speak. It is also useful as an approach to teaching reading for school-age children who need a more individualized, phonetic approach.

For Which Students is SMILE Appropriate?

This method can be successfully used with any pupil who has a severe language-learning disability who has not improved despite special intensive efforts to encourage acquisition of speech and language. Generally these children do not imitate easily or generalize readily. They often seem to have problems with auditory memory, and they may lack expressive speech in the presence or absence of language comprehension. Children with an inability to express or to understand language symbols are a diverse group with respect to their disorder. They may be classified as aphasic, or have an autism spectrum disorder, Down Syndrome, central auditory dysfunction, impaired hearing, or a mental handicap. SMILE is different, using a phonetic method as a significant part of their program.

For full details, download the SMILE registration form either attached to this email or go to www.actbc.ca/smile_sept_2005.pdf. You may register by calling 604-205-5467 or 1-866-939-5188 toll-free.            The early registration deadline is July 15th, 2005. Capacity is 30 people.

If you have received this email directly from ACT and do not wish to be on our email list please reply to this message with "remove" on the subject line. We will delete you from our service immediately. CA.
