5.0 out of 5 stars A Whole New World and an Honest Look at It, April 7, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Bobby: Breakthrough of a Special Child (Paperback)
This book is the story of Bobby, a child who came from an abusive home and had autism. He was unruly, unresponsive to humans, and seemingly very lost and alone. He was also amazingly intelligent and adventureous. The story is told by Rachel Pinney, the therapist who uses an approach called Children's Hours to help autistic children become more aware of themselves and able to function in the outside world. It is an emotional, intensely personal journey of to Bobby's soul. Pinney is honest and doesn't cover up set-backs in the therapy. The therapy and the relationships built between the characters truly gets to the heart of the human spirit that isn't changed by illness or inability.
