For anyone who cares about someone with autism or Asperger’s

A few days ago, I posted a short video from Temple Grandin, a leading voice for those with autism spectrum and Asperger’s syndrome. She is an excellent communicator and has autism.

That was an appetizer for this fascinating presentation. This one is over an hour and packed with information for parents, teachers, and anyone who cares about a person or family affected by autism. I think you’ll want to have your pencil and paper handy.

I haven’t read or used yet most of the resources that Dr. Grandin mentions in this video. But I’m posting below links to those resources to make it easy for us to follow up on what she says.

  3. […] Temple Grandin speaks out about Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and those on the Spectrum. She tells about how in her generation growing up good manners were strongly emphasized and expected, and she says this really helped her develop in spite of being on the spectrum. In the movie based on her life, we learn how her mother did not allow Temple’s disability to keep her from becoming successful in life. Her mother built a ramp and not a crutch. […]
