Walter Suskind will be the Keynote Speaker at this year’s Arc Maryland State Convention!
Life, Animated is a documentary based on the book, “Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism,” written by Ron Suskind, a Pulizer Prize wining journalist. Mr. Suskind wrote the book to describe how his family used Disney movies and dialogue to communicate with his son, Owen, who is on the Autism Spectrum. Owen’s older brother, Walter, was a big part of this effort, together with their mom, Cornelia.
