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, 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 featured in a number of national newspapers.
