The Miracle Project, a theater arts program for children with autism, announces the “I Heart Autism: The New York Miracle Book Tour” -- kicking off with a fundraiser and book signing on Tuesday, February 7 at Barnes & Noble in New York City.
Authors Elaine Hall and Diane Isaacs will read and sign copies of their new book SEVEN KEYS TO UNLOCK AUTISM at Barnes & Noble (150 East 86th Street, New York City) at 7:00pm. This groundbreaking book outlines seven integrated keys for educators and parents to make meaningful connections with children on the autism spectrum. The book is based on the unique approach used by Elaine Hall and Diane Isaacs of The Miracle Project, a musical theater program for children with autism and their peers and siblings. The book teaches ways to apply these effective strategies at school and at home to nurture kids' self-expression and social skills.
About the Authors:
The New York Times calls Elaine Hall “The Child Whisperer.” Elaine ("Coach E") is the founder of The Miracle Project, a Huffington Post contributor and an author. When traditional therapies failed to help her autistic son, she sought out creative people—actors, writers, and teachers—to work with him. The methods Elaine developed to reach kids with autism resulted in The Miracle Project and were profiled in the HBO documentary, Autism: The Musical. Elaine is also the author of the critically acclaimed memoir, Now I See the Moon: A Mother, A Son, A Miracle (2010).
Diane Isaacs is the Creative Director of The Miracle Project. A successful film producer and author, she is the former president of Green Moon Productions, which she cofounded with Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith. Diane produced The Miracle Project's benefit album, FLY, with artists including Jack Black, Stephen Stills, and Chaka Khan. With Elaine Hall, she is expanding The Miracle Project nationally and internationally, from India to Ethiopia.
