Two women involved in The Miracle Project, a musical theatre program for kids with autism, provide a 7-step program to help autistic children communicate and relate to others and explain how to apply these strategies at school and at home.

Elaine Hall ("Coach E") is the founder of The Miracle Project. When traditional therapies failed to help her autistic son, she sought out creative people--actors, writers, and teachers--to work with him. The methods Elainedeveloped to reach kids with autism resulted in The Miracle Project and were profiled in the HBO documentary, Autism: The Musical. Diane Isaacs is the cofounder of The Miracle Project. A successful film producer, 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. She is expanding The Miracle Project nationally and internationally, from India to Ethiopia.
