'BORN TO FLY is a story told by a mother-craft nurse, Helen Ryan, who pioneered treatment interventions in autism. Helen narrates a compelling true story of how a five year old boy, who is removed from a mental asylum in 1951, learns to survive in our world yet retain the richness of his own. Her ground-breaking methods are detailed and clinically presented with each problem behaviour analysed and responded to. Her “real life” miracles put Mary Poppins to shame.'
