One of my coworkers got to meet and listen to Temple Grandin speak in person recently. I will admit she is now the coolest person I know (because she got to met Temple Grandin). I don’t know about you, but her story significantly impacted my understanding of individuals with Autism.
I don’t know about you, but her story significantly impacted my understanding of individuals with Autism. In graduate school, I read one of her books and it was so important to my growth and understanding of individuals with Autism.
As a parent of 2 children, one who had significant sensory processing issues growing up, her book helped me to better understand my child’s sensory needs. She also gave me a glimpse into the mind of an individual with Autism. I am so thankful for her sharing her story with us!
So while I didn’t get to met and listen to her this time, I am hopeful I will get to meet her at some point!
