Temple Grandin, Autism Awareness Lecturer, Talks at TED


Temple Grandin, one of the first people with autism to talk about autism, recently lectured at a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference about autistic minds. Her main plea was for the acceptance of different minds, mainly autistic minds, and a plea to reach out to those minds.

Grandin uses examples from her childhood and adult life to make the case about how these minds can be reached and developed; and the possible things these minds can do.

Grandin is noted for using her mind to revolutionize the livestock industry; in particular how cattle are cared for and treated in the beef industry.
