    The book is the most honest and realistic account i have encountered about Autism and the effect it can have on the whole family. i could totally relate to the highest highs when an autistic child reaches a ‘milestone’ you hardly dared hope for, and the sheer numb despair and loneliness when things are seamingly the worst they have never been with no light in sight. Thank you.

    it´s quite amazing – that the dog is man´s best friend and can sort out different problems. My son Frederic, authistics had as small child an unexplainable fear of do , especially small(schnausers, poodles and yorkies), when he was 10 I let a hunting labrador became part of our family – after 2 weeks they were best friends. Tyson opened up Fredric´s awareness, language and never the least his emphaty and the love to others. God bless Tyson now 16 year old nestor in our family

    Ciao…ho appena finito di leggere il libro “UN AMICO COME HENRY”…un libro che mi ha toccato profondamente,spero che in futuro l’autismo possa essere sconfitto.Un grande grazie va ad Henry (lassu’ in cielo) anche da parte mia per tutto quello che ha fatto per Dale e per la famiglia Gardner.

    i think animals truly help…when my son started playing with a new dog… he started opening up..showing more affection.. thanks for posting this

    The video is not that bad, but there are a few sentences in it, who really let me think: “what are they actually thinking, autism is?”
    That was kind of sad, because autism is nothing people need to “go out”. Sometimes this world isn’T easy for autistics, but just because there are autistics, who learned to behave “normal” doesn’t make them “less autistic”.

  21. tvidie says:

    Hello Ginger, you’ve touched an issue that is very difficult & tricky, as I know words like “recover”,”cure”,even “disorder” carry with them many unintended meanings that hurt families that Autism affects.So with the foundation here that individuals with Autism are essentially no different than any other person, and Autism as a phenomenon is for the most part undefined; no offense is meant by the description and wording here.I posted this story to raise awareness for Autism and inspire families.

    Do you really belive, that autism is something people are “in”, like “in a box”?
