Silent Boy, Torey Hayden

Torey Hayden’s books are always fascinating. Her writing is so personal and intimate. This book is no exception. Hayden is a special education teacher and a counsellor who works with children of abuse. Her books describe her experiences in the field.

Silent Boy tells the story of a child who has been institutionalised for almost a decade, a child who does not speak nor make any sound at all, a child who cries in silence. Hayden navigates this child’s journey and the types of therapies which helped him find his way in the world. It is a magnificent testimony to the attention of special people like Hayden and the inspirational power such attention has to radically alter the lives of these abused children.
