A Friend Like Henry: The Remarkable True Story of an Autistic Boy & the Dog that Unlocked His World

by Nuala Gardner - £10.99  Hodder and Stoughton (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780340934029 | ISBN 10: 0340934026

From the publishers of the bestselling Born On a Blue Day and Marley and Me: the moving and inspiring story of how a devoted family dog helped free a little boy from the prison of his autism.
When Jamie and Nuala Gardner chose a puppy for their son Dale, they weren't an ordinary family choosing an ordinary pet. Dale's autism was so severe that his beahviour could veer from silence to shrieking banshee in just seconds. Jamie and Nuala spent most of their waking hours trying to break into his autistic world.
But the Gardners' lives were transformed when they welcomed Henry, a gorgeous Golden Retriever puppy, into the family. With patient work, the bond between Dale and his dog helped them produce the breakthrough in their son they had long sought.
