Ellen is a cute girl who cannot sit still or focus well. As Dr. Manalis speaks to Ellen and her parents, it becomes clear to the reader how the diagnosis and plan of treatment evolves. Integrated within Ellen's story is information about Attention De ficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In "Silence Takes Its Toll," you will meet Ann, who has become depressed for mysterious reasons. You will come along on her journey to discover why she is so unhappy and whether she can be helped. In " e Teen with Mild Autism," you will meet Carl, with whom Dr. Manalis worked for nearly four years. When they first met, Carl sadly stated that no girl would ever love him because of his autism. Over the years, he worked on improving his eye contact and social skills, attended high school, and in the summers, worked for the park department. Carl was seventeen at their final meeting. Showing his improved eye contact and self-con fidence, Carl excitedly shares that his friends are looking for a girlfriend for him and that he is con dent he is lovable.
