5.0 out of 5 stars Don't give up, 2 May 2010
This review is from: A Friend Like Henry (Paperback)
I saw the cover of a small boy, who it said was autistic, with a big dog who had proved invaluable. I knew very little about autism except it cut the sufferer off from normal human contact. No one seems to know why. This book doesn't give you the answer but tells a heart-rending story of two parents who were desperate to find a way of communicating with their son. Their efforts were frustrated by the refusal of authorities to diagnose autism because of the costs it would involve them in.
It wasn't until they noticed his response to dogs that the breakthrough came.
It's a very human story and it gives the rest of us a chance to see how difficult it can be for people with this problem. I immediately bought it for a friend of my daughter who has an autistic girl.
If you need encouragement to keep going in the face of adversity I thoroughly recommend this.
