The Boy Who Loved Windows

by Patricia Stacey
£10.99   paperback  John Wiley and Sons Ltd (2003)

The Boy Who Loved Windows by Patricia Stacey In 1997, writer Patricia Stacey and her husband, Cliff, learned that their six-month-old son, Walker, might never walk or talk, or even see or hear. Unwilling to accept this grim prognosis, they embarked on a five-year odyssey that took them into alternative medicine and the newest brain research - and toward a new and innovative understanding of autism. Finally their search brought them to pioneering developmental psychiatrist, Stanley Greenspan, who helped them save their son and bring him into full contact with the world.
 
This enthralling memoir, at once heart-wrenching and hopeful, takes the reader into the life of one remarkable family willing to do anything to give their son a rich and emotionally full life. We follow as they struggle to elicit the first sign that their son is connecting with them, and share in their fears, struggles, tiny victories, and eventual triumphs.
 
The Boy Who Loved Windows is not only a compelling and inspiring story for parents and professionals who care for children with autism and other special needs, but also a stunning literary debut. It will captivate anyone who cares about the lives of children and the passion of families who put them first against huge odds.
