Dr. Temple Grandin on Google Video

I am a big fan of Dr. Grandin. I first read of her in Dr. Sacks' book (of whom I am also a big fan) and have since heard her speak a few times and I have read everything she has written. She is a remarkable voice in this world.

Animal science expert and author Temple Grandin is autistic, and she says she can understand animals because of this. Google Video has her full length documentary.

Her story first became known as she was included as a case study in neurologist Oliver Sacks' book An Anthropologist on Mars.

Interestingly, Grandin suggests that her autism helps her understand animals, as she suggests they have similar styles of thinking in some instances.

In the programme, Grandin explains her work and views on autism. Furthermore, the documentary highlights her as a bright and engaging person, far from the usual stereotypes of autistic people.
