    I read this YEARS ago I m surprised I forgot to put it on my list of read books It is an amazing story about a family s journey through the hardships of raising and understanding an autistic child before autism was readily accepted and understood.

    Ann Hodges was born on Jan 10, 1952, to Jack and Ivy Hodges of Mayor St in Salford, England, near Manchester She had an older brother, Leonard, and later a younger brother Leslie Shortly after her birth, a door was left open and the midwife reported that Ann became blue with cold, though medical experts now believe that she had a paroxysm of breathing As the girl grew older, her parents began to notice that she had serious problems not looking people in the eye, being non verbal, drinking Ann Hodges was born on Jan 10, 1952, to Jack and Ivy Hodges of Mayor St in Salford, England, near Manchester She had an older brother, Leonard, and later a younger brother Leslie Shortly after her birth, a door was left open and the midwife reported that Ann became blue with cold, though medical experts now believe that she had a paroxysm of breathing As the girl grew older, her parents began to notice that she had serious problems not looking people in the eye, being non verbal, drinking only from a bottle until age eight, repetitive behaviors such as continual rocking, and irrational fears They took her to all kinds of doctors, and finally when she was six one of them said, I am so very sorry to have to tell you this, but I m afraid that our tests show that it is extremely unlikely that your daughter will ever be educated, or for that matter, that she will ever be able to recognize you as her parents, calling the girl schizophrenic and a psychopath.Jack and Ivy did not accept this diagnosis and refused suggestions to put their daughter into a mental home, so they began the process of trying to educate and train her themselves Jack kept a diary of everything they did over the next fourteen years which formed the basis for this book How did Ann respond What eventually happened with her The Hodgeses later learned that Ann suffered from autism, a condition, very poorly understood in that day, of children who cannot communicate with the outside world and have sensory processing issues even though in many cases they have perfect brains, sight, and hearing Even today, no one knows the cause for certain Author James Copeland, a Scottish journalist who used Jack s record to create this account, calls it a story of love and devotion, the like of which I had never heard before There is no bad language, but a few references to dancing do occur.The biggest objection which some people have with the book is the supposed cruelty and abuse There was a short period of time when Ann s parents found that the only way which they could get through to her was by slapping her So far as I could tell from the reading, nothing that was physically damaging was done but it waslike a parent spanking a small child Of course, many people today consider any striking of a child for any reason, or for that matter even issuing a stern no in rebuke, as cruel abuse Yet Copeland points out, In fact, they had unwittingly stumbled on what is now considered an effective method of training autistic children reward and punishment Also, we need to remember that this story comes from a time when autism was not well known and before many of the support services that are available today existed Several parents of autistic children have said that reading the book gave them hope without concluding that it necessarily promoted violence Anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of autism would do well to read it

    I read this book as a young girl It belonged to my sister and I would read it at night before she came to bed I remember that after I finished it we talked about it and still today I remember how much I enjoyed reading it.

    Fascinating story of how the parents of an autistic child, left to cope on their own by a medical profession that had no idea how to proceed, taught her to behave nearly normally They used a method that our squeamish modern day world would never accept, but by gum it worked.

    This book should come with a trigger warning for survivors of ABA Applied Behaviour Analysis and child abuse.

  8. Hazel Went Hazel Went says:

    The book is well written, but the reader needs to take into account that it was written in the 1970s It s a frightening account, mainly of the lack of understanding about autism and how to support children back then written based on the diary of Ann s father, it details how Ann s parents were effectively left to work out how to help Ann, as she was written off by medical professionals A sign of how far we ve come yet somehow an indicator of how far we have yet to go.

    Il libro purtroppo risente del fatto di essere abbastanza datato e di riportare di conseguenza nozioni sull autismo scorrette e ormai superate Il caso clinico descritto interessante, ma sconsiglierei la lettura a chi non abbia gi un bagaglio di conoscenze sufficiente a discernere tra i dati oggettivi presentati e le conclusioni errate basate su teorie di riferimento obsolete proposte dall autore.
