As a child, Temple Grandin could not speak. Her mute, expressionless existence was broken only by rhythmic rocking and occasional fits of screaming and thrashing. In her videos Temple draws from her personal and extensive professional expertise on the subject of outism. The first video focuses on how one can best deal with the sensory problems people with outism have; the second describes the way she and many others with autism “think in pictures” and how to adjust to this specific learning style; the third draws from her knowledge of medications; and the fourth involves her solid advice for those ready to enter the working world. As one of the world’s leading experts in the field of livestock facility design, she has served as an inspiration and role model to hundreds of thousands of families and persons with autism. Her video series, which is now on DVD, captures her eloquence in describing the challenges she faced and how they were overcome.
