Now I See the Moon : A Mother, a Son, a Miracle
When her son, Neal, was diagnosed with autism, former Hollywood acting coach Elaine Hall, aka Coach E, took matters into her own hands and used her resources to guide him toward an increasingly independent life. In the process, she founded The Miracle Project, a groundbreaking organization that uses the performing arts to connect with children with autism. Both controversial and unorthodox, Hall's innovative approach has been praised by leaders in the field of autism, including Temple Grandin, Barry Prizant, and Dr. Stanley Greenspan. She was also the subject of the Emmy Award-winning documentary "Autism: The Musical." Hall now speaks around the country sharing her wisdom. "Now I See the Moon" is a story of hope, faith, and miracles; it is a story only a mother could tell.
