The Miracle Project

In previous blog posts as well as Junior Positively Autistic: Ryan's Spectrum Talk (my weekly online radio program), I have spoken again and again of the importance of creativity.  Recently, I became aware of an organization situated in the Los Angeles area that promotes creativity programs that are very similar to Joey Travolta's film camp, which I witnessed last summer.  "The Miracle Project" offers creative arts programs for individuals on the spectrum in music, acting and many other areas.  After watching a video describing some of the activities/benefits of this program, one child who was on the spectrum said that acting made him feel like he wasn't autistic anymore.  That he could be himself as he truly was.
