: it's one of our key resources. gives you insight into how an autistic may be thinking. any one with a relative should include this in their library.
: : Hello, I am 15, and I am, personally, living with Asperger's Syndrome (a form of Autism). My mother has been borrowing this book from her friend for quite some time now, but I never actually picked it up and looked at it until now. (To be honest I was never really that interested... there are so many screwed-up learning disabilities these days that I just didn't really care to know more about.) My mother was asking me if I "think in pictures", but she couldn't really explain it to me (because she wasn't that way herself). I was like, "huh?!?!?" because she didn't explain it clear enough for me. She told me she found it in this book. I originally looked in it to find out what she was talking about, and I became so fascinated by everything this author (who was living with Autism herself) had to say. It was almost as if she WAS me - everything she wrote I could totally connect with! She seemed to know me (and others like me) so well it was scary! I think a book like this can help others learn more about Autism. Here is it's information:
: : THINKING IN PICTURES AND OTHER REPORTS FROM MY LIFE WITH AUTISM
: : by: Temple Grandin
: : I am not quite sure where you can look this up (in a library or a good book store, possibly???), because it is borrowed and I do not visit bookstores that frequently, but if you can, that is really good because this book is nothing short of amazing.
: : Cheers!

COMMENT; Either of those sites might have a place to buy or a referrel to buy Temple Grandin's books. The first is The Center for the Study of Autism, has writings from Grandin, and the other is the Autism Research Institute, and they sell many books, Grandin's might be there. Grandma Peg
