Autism and our students

Sometimes, we are challenged with groups of students that are special and need a special attention.

 

 

I have just discovered this movie and I really enjoyed watching it: it is a lovely story about an autistic and brilliant woman: Temple Grandin.

A biopic of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who has become one of the top scientists in the humane livestock handling industry.

If you like to see her speaking about autism, go to ted.

 

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.
