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.

Melyssa Martinez's insight:

I really enjoyed her speech on autistic children of all ages. How we are able to understand their thinking in images and how delopmental ways they see things ;It is absoultely brilliant and insightful. We all have to realize naturally every child is diffrent under their spectrum and is unique in their own personality ....:)
