Additional Information

The Miracle Project is a transformational music, dance, theater and film social skills program created by Elaine Hall, and profiled in the Emmy winning HBO documentary 'AUTISM: The Musical.'

This event will include a screening of 'AUTISM: The Musical' followed by a Q & A with Elaine Hall and book signing. Elaine Hall “Coach E!,” referenced by The New York Times as “the child whisperer” was a top Hollywood children’s acting coach whose life changed dramatically after her son Neal, adopted from a Russian orphanage, was diagnosed with autism.

When traditional therapies did not work for him, she sought the esteemed Dr. Stanley Greenspan who encouraged her to rally actors and other creative people to join his world and Neal slowly emerged out of his isolation.

She then developed the techniques described in her book The Seven Keys to Unlock Autism, written with Diane Isaacs, and used these methods to train staff and volunteers and to create The Miracle Project, a theatre and film program for children of all abilities, profiled in the Emmy Award HBO documentary 'AUTISM: The Musical.'

She has appeared on CNN, CBS News, Oprah Radio and featured in The LA Times, New York Times and Wall Street Journal.

Elaine directs the Vista Inspire Program, an arts enrichment and a bar/bat mitzvah program for children and teens with autism at Vista Del Mar in Los Angeles.
