How Disney movies helped a family communicate with their autistic son
Owen Suskind was diagnosed with autism in his formative years and was left unable to communicate. He was isolated from the outside world and his family, but Disney movies eventually helped him find his voice. A new documentary, Life, Animated, tells the story of how Owen learned to live with autism and interact with the world around him with the help of Disney’s classic stories and characters.
Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
