Details

Having been diagnosed with regressive autism at 3-years-old, the Suskind's youngest son Owen lost his ability to speak and later developed an obsessive interest in animated Disney movies. The family decided to use this interest as a way of interacting with their son and took on the roles of his favourite characters - a creative method which would effectively restore Owen's ability to speak over years of practice.
