One child

Image of item
Hayden recounts her battle to uncover the keen intelligence and touch the emotions of a troubled, sexually molested six-year-old girl who abused a younger child and was placed in her class for retarded preadolescents while awaiting space in a state institution.
Six-year-old Sheila was abondoned by her mother on a highway when she was four. A survivor of horrific abuse, she never spoke and never cried. She was placed in a class for severely retarded children after committing an atrocious act of violence against a three-year-old child. Everyone thought Sheila was beyond salvation- except her teacher, Torey Hayden. With patience, skill and abiding love, she fought long and hard to release a haunted little girl from her secret nightmare- and nurture the spark of genius she recognized trapped within Sheila's silence. This is the remarkable story of their journey together, an odyssey of hope, courage, and inspiring devotion that opened the heart and mind of one lost child to a new world of discovery and joy. -- Back Cover.
