"After she found she was unable to conceive, children's acting coach Elaine Hall and her husband adopted a two-year-old boy from Russia and named him Neal. When he showed symptoms of autism, a doctor advised her to try to engage with Neal on his own terms. From her acting work with children, Elaine knew how to enter into playful imitation of Neal's erratic-seeming motions; she began to understand the challenges within his sensory world. Neal made great progress, though he never achieved a "normal" way of life. In Now I See the Moon, Elaine offers an unflinching, poignant, and informative account of parenting an autistic person."
