The Boy Who Loved Windows
Patricia Stacey's book The Boy Who Loved Windows: Opening the Heart and Mind of a Child Threatened with Autism has received numerous positive reviews from O Magazine, Newsday, and authors like Temple Grandin and Martha Beck. Written by a parent of a child diagnosed with autism, this book describes the hardships that one family endured as they searched for ways to connect their son with the rest of the world. Parts of Walker's life are documented from birth, and his parents consult Stanley Greenspan, a developmental psychiatrist, on how to best help their son after doctors tell them he may never see, hear, walk, or talk again.
