Wade Fisher and Temple Grandin
So here's Dr. Grandin talking to some cute cowboy about cows and stuff.
Sorry-- Temple's got her special interests, I've got mine.
Both satisfied here.
Temple Grandin answers questions.
Although the technical aspects are less than ideal, this recent presentation by Dr. Grandin at TreeHouse School in the U.K. is pretty fascinating. After a very brief introduction, she just sits down and answers the audience's questions. In the first part (above) these deal mostly with the HBO movie about her life. As always, Dr. Grandin is wonderfully specific, inspiring, and adorable.

The White House will be holding a meeting Monday with experts on autism:
They'll talk about policies related to health care, education, and employment for people with autism.
Dr. Temple Grandin was not bothered by people who showed up to protest her recent talk at in Canisius College’s Montante Cultural Center:
“I get asked all the time if I’m a vegan or a vegetarian, and I’m not. First of all, I have a metabolism that won’t function without animal protein, and one of the things you’ve got to realize is that all of the animals that were raised for food would never have existed if we hadn’t bred them,” Grandin told reporters, in a brief interview before the lecture.
“But I feel very strongly that we’ve got to give those animals a life that is worth living.”
The biological mother of two boys with autism allegedly caged by their father and his fiance is seeking custody, but the children will remain in the care of the state for now.
