Ms. Elaine Hall, founder and President of The Miracle Project, will be speaking at League School of Greater Boston, located on 300 Providence Highway in Walpole, on February 13th at 4:15.
Ms. Hall, also known as “Coach E!,” and 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 – the result was Neal slowly emerging out of his isolation.
Ms. Hall, whose appearance at League School is being sponsored by the Dedham Institution for Savings, is a keynote speaker and workshop leader at conferences around the globe. Her book, Now I See the Moon: a mother, a son, a miracle was chosen for World Autism Awareness Day at the United Nations where she has spoken several times. Ms. Hall’s latest book, co-authored with Diane Isaacs, Seven Keys to Unlock Autism: Creating Miracles In The Classroom is being used in universities across the United States.
The methods presented by Ms. Hall in The Seven Keys to Unlock Autism are used to train staff and volunteers and to create The Miracle Project, a theatre and film program for children of all abilities that was profiled in the Emmy Award HBO documentary, AUTISM: The Musical. Ms. Hall also 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. She has appeared on CNN, CBS News, Oprah radio and feature in a number of national newspapers.
League School’s Executive Director, Dr. Frank Gagliardi, stated “We are thrilled to be able to offer our students, staff, family and friends the opportunity to hear this dynamic speaker. We are anticipating an exceptionally engaging presentation and invite anyone interested in hearing Ms. Hall speak to join us for what promises to be a very special event.” To reserve your space, please RSVP via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. or call: 508-850-3900, extension 512.
