NightSide – Temple Grandin, Author Of “The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across The Spectrum” Is In Stuido
BOSTON (CBS) – Temple Grandin is a well known philosophical leader in both the animal welfare and autism advocacy movements. Diagnosed with autism at the age of three, Grandin has provided the world an excellent look into what life is like for someone living with autism. In dealing with the sensory overload that is often part of the disorder, Grandin found a connection to livestock and the tendency to be frightened by the world around them. Her life was the focus of an award-winning biographical film in 2010, and she was listed in the Time 100 as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Tune in to hear Temple talk with Dan about her life and perspective.
