February 13, 2012

This visual lecture offers the audience strategies for creating a personal skill set to make their encounters with autistic children as successful and rewarding as possible.  The authors outline seven integrated keys for educators and parents to make meaningful connections with children on the autism spectrum.  These strategies developed by Elaine Hall are based on her unique approach used to train staff and volunteers at The Miracle Project, a musical theater program for children with autism and their peers and siblings.

The Miracle Project integrates traditional and creative therapies in an interactive, social dynamic.  This presentation shows how to apply these effective strategies at school and at home to nurture kids' self-expression and social skills.
