Publisher's summary

Dr. Temple Grandin gets to the real issues of autism, the ones parents, teachers, and individuals on the spectrum face every day. Temple offers helpful dos and don'ts, practical strategies, and try-it-now tips, all based on her insider perspective and a great deal of research. These are just some of the specific topics she delves into:

  • How and why people with autism think differently
  • Economical early intervention programs that work
  • How sensory sensitivities affect learning
  • Behaviors caused by a disability vs. just bad behaviors
  • Teaching people with autism to live in an unpredictable world
  • Alternative medicine vs. conventional medicine
  • Employment ideas for adults with autism

This revised and expanded edition of The Way I See It contains 32 new subjects based on the most current autism research, including:

  • The role of genetics and environmental factors in causing autism
  • Understanding the mind of a nonverbal person with autism
  • Finding mentors and appropriate colleges
  • Teachable moments give the child time to respond
  • And more!

What an amazing lady

Temple Grandin in an amazing lady with a perspective of an autistic person who can give others not on the Spectrum ideas of how better to assist their family members who are on the Spectrum! Her passion is obvious and her information is very detailed and specific, sometimes it's hard to follow, but the ideas are so totally worth learning!!! I've got so many ideas for my son's upcoming IPP, i can't wait to share and see what the team has to say about my new ideas! Thank you.

Just impeccable!

I absolutely love every bit of this book. Her voice is so articulate and clear, and easy to listen to. I bought this book to better understand my boyfriend and his talents and the way he is uniquely different. I also feel better equipped when I meet someone who is non-verbal. I’m fascinated and feel so empowered when reading this book.
