Description

"Now I See the Moon provides insightful ways to teach and work with individuals with autism and severe disabilities. It will give parents great hope." -- Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures

"This magnificent work vividly demonstrates the joy and hope of discovering the creative and emotional capacities which exist in all children, but especially in those children with autism and other special needs." -- Dr. Stanley Greenspan, author of The Child with Special Needs and Engaging Autism

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. She was also the subject of an 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.
