- One, Two, Three ... The Story of Matt, A Feral Child
Republished 1991. Presents a case history of a child who is variously described as autistic, schizophrenic, and retarded, who is rescued by the therapist author from his over-protective mother. It's unclear whether she believes that his mother caused all his problems or was merely exacerbating them. The book only reveals in very very small print that it's "a composite of a number of cases of the problems faced by the social service and medical profession in the diagnosis, treatment, and development of capabilities of such children" (i.e. this didn't actually take place).
