Please watch this...Temple Grandin: The world needs all kinds of minds

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.

Thank You for sharing this video. Temple touches my heart. I see this and know that there is hope to have people come to appreciate our Autistic community and see them as an asset and not a handicap.
