When her son, Neal, was diagnosed with autism, former Hollywood acting coach Elaine Hall, aka Coach E, took matters into her own hands and used her resources to guide him toward an increasingly independent life. In the process, she founded The Miracle Project, a groundbreaking organization that uses the performing arts to connect with children with autism. Both controversial and unorthodox, Elaine's innovative approach has been praised by leaders in the field of autism. Now I See the Moon is a story of hope, faith, and miracles; it is a story only a mother could tell.

About the Author:

Elaine Hall, aka Coach E, is an educator, writer, and children’s acting coach for film and TV. Her groundbreaking organization, The Miracle Project, a theater and film program for children of all abilities, was profiled in the Emmy Award–winning HBO documentary Autism: The Musical. Elaine is a keynote speaker and autism advocate throughout the United States and Canada and focuses on being “Miracle-Minded” and bringing out the best in all children. She has received hon-ors from Autism Speaks and the Autism Society of America and spoke at the United Nations for International Autism Awareness Day. Elaine lives in Santa Monica, California, with the two loves of her life: her son, Neal, and husband, Jeff Frymer.

Review:

“Enlightening...timely, painstakingly positive...[Hall] beautifully chronicles Neal’s development. She created her life’s work in the Miracle Project, a theater arts program for autistic kids” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Now I See the Moon provides insightful ways to teach and work with individuals with autism and severe disabilities. It will give parents great hope.” (Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures)

“Elaine Hall’s Miracle Project is a “miracle”―a miracle of ingenuity, human intimacy, and creativity. This magnificent work vividly demonstrates the joy and hope of discovering the creative and emotional capacities which exist in all children, but especially in those children with autism and other special needs.” (Dr. Stanley Greenspan, author of The Child with Special Needs and Engaging Autism)

“A moving, unvarnished look at living with autism and a helpful guide to action.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Now I See the Moon is a beautiful story about a Mother’s love, a boy’s depth, and the transformative power of hope. Her son Neal is an inspiration and a miracle. I encourage every parent to read this wonderful book; It will change the way you think about autism.” (Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, Dean of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies at the American Jewish University and author of The Bedside Torah)

“Now I See the Moon is must reading for anyone connected with a child who has special needs. A beautiful example of love and determination. It is also an inspiration to all women going through life transitions and learning to connect with and trust their inner guidance.” (Dr. Margaret Paul, author of Do I Have to Give Up Me to Be Loved by You)

“Now I See the Moon isa riveting and miraculous ride. Elaine Hall weaves her incredible story in a gutsy, inspirational, painful, hilarious, but always honest manner...overflowing with moments that realistically convey the agony of autism, as well as the gifts autism brings.” (Barry M. Prizant, Director of Childhood Communication Services, and Adjunct Professor in the Center for the Study of Human Development, Brown University)

“In her courageously candid memoir, Elaine describes the challenges and rewards of parenting a child with autism. She usefully explains how she’s expanded her son’s world through theatre and play. Most of all, Elaine describes the human heart. And how rising to meet the challenges of love will grow it.” (Janet Grillo, executive producer of Autism: The Musical)

“Elaine Hall is a miracle worker with kids who face special challenges. She has an intuitive, creative connection with them, which together they put into theater and film with profound results for the kids and their families. Our family experienced this first hand. Her story is powerful and inspiring.” (David O. Russell, director of Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, and The Fighter)

“A brilliant, spiritual journey filled with out-of-the-box creativity, love and passion. Elaine Hall’s voice lingers long after turning the last page, inspiring powerful living despite any and all challenges. Best read with milk and warm gluten-free cookies.” (Keri Bowers, director of Normal People Scare Me)
