A description of the experience

Temple Grandin:

The world needs all kinds of minds

TED2010 · 19:43 · Filmed Feb 2010

Temple Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, talks about how her mind works — sharing her ability to "think in pictures," which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She makes the case that the world needs people on the autism spectrum: visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids.
