For the first year or so of Betsy's life, she was a happy, playful baby.  But then all that changed.  She stopped responding to people.  She would spend hours just staring at nothing.  She wouldn' speak.  She seemed to be in a world of her own.  She had autism.  Her mother enrolled her in a special school but after months of work, there was little change.  Everyone was giving up hope.  Is there anything that can reach this litle girl?
