Ron Suskind’s book, Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism, examines his family’s twenty-year adventure of the heart with his son, Owen. Having lost his speech at age three, Owen used animated Disney movies to make sense of the world. As his family learned to “speak Disney” along with him, Owen created a method to help parents and medical experts reach kids with autism. In this deeply personal but universally resonant presentation, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist shares Owen’s journey from quiet solitude to animated communication. Their motto—your passion is your pathway—now guides educators, therapists, and parents in tapping the deep potential in all of us.
