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.

Me and Temple Grandin

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!
