Temple Grandin: The world needs all kinds of minds ( a unique take autism/aspergers)
[link to www.ted.com]


Temple Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, talks about how her mind works -- sharing her ability to "think in pictures," which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She makes the case that the world needs people on the autism spectrum: visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids.






Lots of good "goose bump" moments in this one :) enjoy

I wish she had touched more on the verbal thinkers...
