Many of you have heard of Temple Grandin. She’s a professor at Colorado State University, known for her ability to think in pictures in similar way, she says, to animals. She gained initial recognition by applying that ability and her affinity with animals, by revolutionizing the business of animal husbandry and humane treatment even within slaughterhouses. She has now designed the facilities in which half the cattle are handled in the United States. Autism she feels, has positive sides that are essential to society.
This is a fascinating article including some great description of her brain structures.
If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend watching Claire Dane’s brilliant portrayal of Ms. Grandin in the movie “Temple Grandin.”
