PHOENIX - Two celebrities are inspiring children with autism to have a voice.
Larry Bissonnette,42, and Tracy Thresher, 52 both have autism.
They starred in a documentary called "Wretches and Jabberers" which puts a new face on autism. They travel and meet with others with autism showing them different ways to express their voice.
The children at the Neurologic Music Therapy Services of Arizona got a chance to meet with the stars for several hours Tuesday.
“When we found out we had a chance to get them to come visit we jumped on it,” said Suzanne Oliver.
Oliver says both Larry and Tracy are like role models. They communicate through touch therapy. They’ve learned to type their thoughts out on a device similar to an iPad. This allows them to express all the thoughts that are going through their mind.
