LEGO Star Wars Writer Michael Price to Appear on 'Autism Live' 6/6

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2012) - LEGO Star Wars Padawan Menace writer and Simpsons writer/co- executive producer Michael Price will join his wife bestselling autism memoir author Monica Holloway, to give an interview on Autism Live regarding the couple's service to families affected by autism inspired by their son Wills, 15, on the Autism Spectrum.

Price and Holloway both are dedicated supporters of Autism Speaks and Special Needs Network, two charities dedicated to autism. Price also credits Wills with providing him the inspiration for the story he used in writing the recent landmark 500th episode of The Simpsons, showing anything is possible for those affected by the disorder. In 2011 Holloway received the Special Needs Network 'Woman of Distinction Award' for her work spreading awareness of autism. Michael and Monica led the only dedicated school-wide team of 40 special-ed teachers and families as 'Team Frostig' at the 2012 Autism Speaks walk in Los Angeles.

Most importantly, Price and Holloway are always eager to go the extra mile for another family affected by autism, whether it may be listening to the story of a newly diagnosed family, introducing a child with autism to a new friend, hosting an autism-friendly kids party in their home, or lending encouragement to a parent who needs help just facing the day.
