Autism and Arts: a story of Inspiration for all parents

Live Broadcast:
Conversation for Change with Joshua Sparrow, MD.

We are teaming up with Brazelton Touchpoints Center from Harvard University to help launch their new tv show called “CONVERSATIONS FOR CHANGE.” The series is being hosted by renowned child psychiatrist Joshua Sparrow, MD.

Our guests on this episode truly inspired me. I feel privileged to share their story, especially during these crazy times. They showed me that even when life does not turn out the way we expected it to, you can create a unique journey for yourself that is even better than the one you originally planned.

Both Elaine Hall and Judi Bennett had autistic children that are now adults. In a quest to help their families, both created projects that ended up helping thousands of other children and creating a fulfilling life for themselves.

Elaine Hall, the founder of The Miracle Project, was a top Hollywood acting coach when her son was diagnosed with autism. When traditional therapy did not work, she developed an innovative creative-based methodology (now evidence-based) to reach him. Recognized worldwide, she has spoken at the United Nations, featured in theNew York Times, The Wall Street Journal, on CNN, CBS, the Oprah Winfrey Network, and profiled in the Emmy winning HBO documentary Autism: The Musical.

Yudi Bennett was an assistant director and production manager, working on projects like Kramer vs. Kramer and Star Trek. Yudi ended up co-founding Exceptional Minds, an innovative visual effect and animation school and studio for artists on the autism spectrum. Exceptional Minds artists have gone on to work on hit movies such as “Black Panther” and “Avengers: End Game.”

Please join me in meeting Elaine Hall and Yudi Bennett next Wednesday, April 22nd at noon PST and get inspired by their story.
