The Best Kind of Friend,
This review is from: A Friend Like Henry: The Remarkable True Story of an Autistic Boy and the Dog That Unlocked His World (Paperback)
Scottish parents Nuala and Jamie are at their wits' end trying to help their severely austitic son, Dale. When visiting, they notice that Dale is showing interest in a dog, so they get him a golden retriever, whom he names Henry after one of the Thomas the Tank Engine characters. Nuala describes how Dale changes and progresses after Henry's arrival, becoming less withdrawn and more concerned with the feelings of others. This touching true story provides one more example of how a remarkable dog can help a person in need.
