This DVD reveals both the tremendous challenges and deep joys of raising a child with a severe developmental disability. As an infant, Hannah would not respond when someone walked in the room. When other babies were walking, she still crawled. At two years old, Hannah could not speak a word. She lived in her own little world. She lived in her own little world, one of constant tantrums that kept her family awake at nights for weeks on end. Frustration and sleepless nights turned into desperation. But Hannah's mother prayed to God and clearly heard film say in her heart, "Hannah has been made in my image. You need to look at her like I see her." Through the support of a team of careworkers and other professionals, Hannah made progress. Her family discovered she could count. And then one day, she spoke--in perfect, clear English. Soon, she was using the family computer to study dinosaurs. Hannah's story is an inspiring account of how one, dedicated family has learned to raise a child diagnosed with PDD, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, a form of autism. Viewers will be touched by the story's revealing truth--that a family's committed, God-centered love can help us survive even the most challenging valleys of life. Approximate running time of 53 minutes.

Review 1 for Behind the Glass Door...Hannah's Story, DVD
Hannah was born with a brain disorder(a form of Autism)and had a sleeping disorder as well. Her disorder caused her to have no way to communicate and, therefore, caused her to scream most or all of the time. The parents knew they had to find a way to communicate with Hannah. They hired some compassionate, educated, people to work with her and continue to see amazing results. This development disorder has been extremely hard on all of them, but, God holds there family together.
