Because of the support The Miracle Project will receive through efforts based in the grassroots Beverly Hills community, the door is opened for children with disabilities and their typically developing peers and siblings to explore their love of song, dance, performance and theater with Elaine Hall, known as “the child whisperer” for her gifts in working with this population.
The Miracle Project proudly offers five elements to their evidence-based services that speak to their breadth, depth and expertise in the field:
- Arts as an intervention with therapeutic, evidence based and proven methodology,
- Develop voices and talents, a forum for children and young adults to ultimately discover their true selves,
- Building compassion, all classes are fully inclusive of individuals with and without disabilities,
- Development of Social and Work Skills, while some students go off to professional paid acting and talent careers, many participants learn to stay centered and calm, a valuable work skill across all industries at a time when 80% of young adults with disabilities are unemployed.
