Learning from Temple Grandin

16 Sep 2015

The learning curve is part of what makes our work in ACSYL so exciting. A great source of inspiration is the life and work of Dr Temple Grandin, a woman who was diagnosed with autism as a child and went on to become a pioneering scientist in the field of animal handling. An accomplished public speaker, Dr Grandin has written a number of ground-breaking books about autism.

Just added to our Resource section is a short article about Dr Grandin and the "specialised brains" that autistic people have. This is a term that she uses in her book Thinking in Pictures.

If you'd like to read the article, go to the Resources section of our website and select Autism.
