Adult with Autism Reenacts Scene From 'Aladdin' with Gilbert Gottfried

March 09, 2015

A “Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs” was a huge hit within our autism community! Among the highlights of the night included a video of best-selling author Ron Suskind with his son Owen who has autism. In the video Suskind explains how he used Disney as therapy to help Owen progress.

After the video played, Owen received an amazing surprise when he was able to meet and reenact a scene from one of his favorite movies, Disney’s Aladdin with comedian Gilbert Gottfried who voiced the character of Iago in the film.

A Night of Too Many Stars so far has raised over 4 million dollars for New York Collaborates for Autism and over 22 million since 2009. You can read more about the event on our website here
