Children In Film Board of Advisor Member’s Project to be Featured on HBO

March 25, 2008

Elaine Hall, Board of Advisor member for Children In Film and founder of The Miracle Project, is an educator, writer, consultant, performer and professional acting coach for TV and film that has written and directed more than 30 children's plays.  She is the mother of Neal who was diagnosed as autistic after his adoption.  When traditional therapies did not help Neal, Hall sought out creative people (actors, writers and musicians) to work with her son.  Through her efforts, she developed new methods to reach autistic children, which resulted in the The Miracle Project.  Hall's own story forms a kind of center, her life with Neal inspiring her dedication and optimism.  Be sure to watch Autism: The Musical on HBO.  Read More
