It’s a Disney Miracle!

Recently, an article circulated around my school, and I’m sure many others as well, about a family who used Disney movies in order to connect with their child who has progressive Autism. And in this beautifully written article, the mother spoke about the first connection that her son had made, and how it brought their family together. The little boy (now 20) used characters like the Sea Which from “The Little Mermaid” and Iago from “Aladdin” in order to communicate with his family. He used quotes to help express how he felt, his wants, and needs. This family found the hook that connected their son to communication

It’s a lovely and unusual story, and luckily I was able to find a Good Morning America snip-it on youtube. I thought that you might enjoy it. 🙂
