Pace University School of Education partnered with author, Paul Nelson, in creating Fisher's Autism Audiobook Trilogy, which was inspired by Paul's autistic son, Michael. This audio series was developed so that all students with special needs could experience this animated fictional story. 

A valued partner, Paul speaks to the School of Education's NYC Teaching Fellows and pre-service teachers every year, about his first-hand experiences as both a father of a son with autism and as a former music teacher. The goal is to help them better understand the population and discuss ways to build a connection with parents. He also speaks about the story behind the books and how Michael is his daily inspiration.

A milestone for the school, Pace University School of Education and Dyson College of Arts and Sciences produced this series using all internal production resources. Our very own School of Performing Arts students brought the book's characters to life with their talented voice-overs.

Although targeted for young adults age 12 and up, Fisher's Autism Audiobook Trilogy is a good listen for all ages. Filled with enchantment, and suspense, this trilogy follows the journeys of autistic friends who use their superpowers of the mind to fight evil. All three books in the series are available on Audible: Through Fisher's Eyes: An Autism AdventureDark Spectrum, and A Problem with the Moon
