Temple Grandin is an autistic woman who is an expert on the behavior of cattle. She has also written books. She is relevant to me because she provided me with the evidence I needed to overcome a lot of the trouble I had in communicating with other people. I never knew that I could actually do something to learn the way that other people think. It is a slow process for an autistic person to learn the hardships of the adult world where I am around people who talk, but do not say anything I understand.
I would encourage anyone who would like to understand autism to look at Temple’s own website.
It is possible for even those with social handicaps to improve in communication. I found that I always had a lot to say but never could find the words. After I watched the movie about the life of Temple Grandin, I knew it was possible.
