This was a fascinating hour of info.Having worked with autistic children some of the information was well-known. However medicine and the world of science has come a long way since those working days and there was much here that gave a more in-depth understanding of Autism and Aspergers.Thanks for posting this Sean.
Janice,glad you found it fascinating.Yes, most people - including myself - would not know much about autism and Asperger's; that's why I offer(ed) the video. It's, of course,'awful' long and not many visitors will (have/take the time to) watch it. As said: it's an offer. :)

I deleted my comment (and the correction of her name) because I felt it didn't say well enough how admirable Temple Grandin is. She prefers solitude, yet, she goes public to discuss what can be achieved with autism and aspergers. It's a great encouragement for parents and children.I love her independance and strong will in living her life according to her own tastes in clothes, housing, work and companionship. I'm deeply impressed.This is still a very imperfect comment for a "wondrous posting". Thanks, Sean.
Claude,you may sometimes, with hindsight, be not 'happy' with this and that what you've written. Same with me.Still, isn't for a perfect life imperfectness a conditio sine qua non? :)I am glad you are as fascinated as I am. Thank you.
Yes, she's a remarkable woman.
A remarkable personality, indeed.Glad you 'stumbled upon this', Ashley.
