The dramatic and moving true story of a fifteen-year-old boy who refused to speak-- until the miracle of love penetrated his miserable silence. His name was Kevin but his keepers called him Zoo Boy. He didn't talk. He hid under tables and surrounded himself with a cage of chairs. He hadn't been out of the building in the four years since he'd come in. He was afraid of water and wouldn't take a shower. He was afraid to be naked, to change his clothes. He was nearly 16. Desperate to see change in the boy, the staff of Kevin's adolescent treatment center hired Hayden. As Hayden read to him and encouraged him to read, crawling down into his cage of chairs with him, Kevin talked. Then he started to draw and paint and showed himself to have a quick wit and a rolling, seething, murderous hatred for his stepfather
Twilight children : three voices no one heard until a therapist listened by Torey L Hayden( Book )
48 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 1,593 libraries worldwide
For decades, former special education teacher Torey Hayden has been a light in the darkness for severely troubled children, and she has chronicled her determined efforts, triumphs, and breakthroughs in a series of internationally bestselling books, beginning with her powerful and poignant One Child. But it wasn't until she left the classroom that she faced three of her most extraordinary challenges. While working in the children's psychiatric ward of a large city hospital, Hayden was introduced to seven-year-old Cassandra, a child who had been kidnapped by her father and found three states away, starving, dirty, and picking through garbage cans. What she had suffered during that time was a mystery, since she refused to speak of it, and all attempts to get to the root of her erratic, increasingly violent behavior had hitherto failed. This would certainly be one of Torey Hayden's most difficult cases, for how do you reach a child so horrifically abused that she views every attempt to break through her defenses as life-threatening? Drake was a charming, charismatic four-year-old who managed to participate fully in his preschool class without uttering a single word. He would only speak to his mother, who brought the boy, clutching his beloved stuffed tiger, Friend, to Hayden. Pressured by Drake's tough, unbending grandfather, who demanded immediate results, the therapist feared that overly stringent treatment would only tear his family further apart. And though a specific course of action seemed clear, even she was unprepared for the shocking truth about little Drake's condition. Then there was Gerda, eighty-two, whom a massive stroke had rendered fearful and unwilling to engage in conversation with anyone. Though Hayden had never worked with adults, she agreed to help when all other efforts had failed, and discovered in the process that what Gerda could do was nearly as heartbreaking as her limitations. A woman suffering in the twilight of her years and two children trapped in the ever-darkening shadows, these are the cases that would test one healer's courage, compassion, and skill, and ultimately reaffirm her faith in the indomitable strength of the human spirit
