ABOUT The Authors:
Dr. Temple Grandin was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Temple’s achievements are remarkable because she was a child with autism. At age two, she had speech delays as well as other signs of severe autism. Fortunately, her mother defied the advice of her doctor and husband, who recommended she be institutionalized. Many hours of speech therapy and intensive training enabled Temple ultimately to speak. As a teenager, life was hard with constant teasing. Mentoring by her high school science teacher and her aunt on her ranch in Arizona motivated Temple to study and pursue a career as a scientist and livestock equipment designer. She is a popular international lecturer on autism, a professor of animal science at Colorado State University, and the author of Emergence: Labeled Autistic; Thinking in Pictures; Animals in Translation; Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships; The Way I See It; DIFFERENT...Not Less; and many more.
