I try not to post too often but I just can't keep quiet on this one- got to share. I heard a wonderful interview with Temple Gradin on NPR's Fresh air, she talks about what her life has been like living with Autism, the connection she sees autism having to animals... and how it has been to get her Phd and teach. It is insightful and really really worth a listen (yes Terry Gross the interviewer can be a little annoying) but it is so good and thought provoking. Click here to hear the show. Wish I could see the film made about her life , out soon I think in the states (with the talented Claire Danes as Temple). For TV only sadly.
