Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin is one of the most well-known adults with autism in the world. She's written several books about autism and tours the world giving talks on the subject. There's even a movie about her! (We have yet to see it.)

The first book I read after learning about Jackson's Asperger's diagnosis was Dr. Grandin's "The Way I See It: A Personal Look at Autism and Asperger's" (2008). Her upbeat, take charge, hard-working attitude towards autism in her own life is inspiring and the book set a very positive tone for my new relationship with Autism.

"Highly Recommend" is an understatement.

Thanks to having an incredibly supportive husband who is encouraging me to go, I just registered for this conference on Autism and Asperger's in Minneapolis next month. Dr. Grandin is one of the featured speakers and I'm very excited to see her in person!
