Publisher Comments:

Dr. Temple Grandin's voice of experience is back to give parents and teachers specific, practical advice on helping young people on the autism spectrum. This collection of articles, written from 2000-present as an exclusive column in the national award-winning magazine, Autism Asperger's Digest, offers Temple's invaluable personal and professional insights, from inside the world of autism, about autism. Temple voices her views on a wide variety of topics ranging from the nonverbal child to social functioning, early intervention to adult issues. The articles have been updated and Temple has added fresh commentary on the topics.

Review:

"If autism had a rock star, it would be Grandin....[A] nice overview from a prominent member of the autism community." Library Journal

Synopsis:

In this revised and expanded edition of the 2008 bestseller, Dr. Temple Grandin, the world's most famous person with autism, reveals the secrets of her success! But this isn't a mushy memoir. Temple gets down to the REAL issues of autism—the ones parents, teachers, and individuals on the spectrum face every day. Temple offers helpful do’s and don’ts, practical strategies, and try-it-now tips, all based on her “insider” perspective and a great deal of research. Temple delves into: How People with Autism Think, Early Intervention Strategies that Work, Behavior Explanations and Solutions, Alternative Medicine, Employment Ideas, and much more!

About the Author

As a child, Temple Grandin could not speak. Her silent existence was broken only by rhythmic rocking and occasional fits of screaming and thrashing. Diagnosed with autism, Temple's many caregivers eventually helped her contradict her doctors' morbid predictions and go on to become one of the autism community's most beloved success stories. Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is a popular international lecturer on autism and the author of Emergence: Labeled Autistic, Thinking in Pictures, Animals in Translation, and Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships. One of the world's leading experts in livestock facility design, over half of the cattle in North America are handled in facilities designed by her. She credits her visual thinking and her systemizing mind, both characteristics of autism, for her ability to be "the woman who thinks like a cow." Temple continues to be an inspiration and role model to millions.

It is so incredibly helpful to have Temple Grandin's insight, to be told about autism spectrum disorders straight from the horse's mouth. For those of you touched by ASD, remember when you first began talking and interacting with others who are also affected - parents and their children, complete strangers, or maybe other family members or friends? Remember that sweet relief of just being able to share experiences? Temple Grandin helps us penetrate the INNER nature of those experiences and helps us better understand those on the autism/Asperger's spectrum. She also offers practical strategies for behavior modification.
