Ron Suskind in conversation with Howard Norman - Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism
Suskind, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Hope in the Unseen, Confidence Men, and many others, is also the father of an autistic son. Owen couldn’t speak for many years, but he avidly watched Disney films and memorized the dialogue and songs. Gradually, through singing and reciting from the movies, Owen and his family found a way to communicate. (Kingswell)
