Temple Grandin, who was diagnosed with autism as child, shares how the unique way her mind works helps her to solve problems. She goes on to explain the unique skills possessed by people with autism. You might not completely agree with her assessment of what schools are doing for students with autism, but she does raise some great points that should be considered by anyone working with students who have autism.
