Temple Grandin's autism talk on TED - just fascinating!

4 years ago

If the name sounds familiar it's probably because you know Temple Grandin from her work with animals. They made a movie about her life and she's done amazing things to help the quality of life for cattle, horses, etc.

In this video she does a live presentation on TED about what it's like to be autistic. I only wish it was longer! She obviously has so much to share! She talks about thinking in pictures and how it helps her solve problems. 

She also talks about how the world needs autistic people for their different types of thinking.

Here's the video:
