Learning: Temple Grandin

I'm taking a class this semester with Mrs. Smith called "Exceptional Children", and one of our assignments includes watching one of the movies she gave us and discussing themes and what we can learn within small groups. Ah, what a great homework assignment, right??

The movie I got to watch with my group was one that I had never heard of before, but completely changed my understanding on the perspective of someone on the Autism Spectrum. Temple Grandin is an incredible movie that's not only captivating, but accurate to Grandin's story. She holds a masters and doctorate degree, and is now a professor in Colorado, and she's simply incredible. Her mind amazes me and she has tenacity and passion that I can guarantee will inspire you.

I hope you get a chance to see the movie, but if not, here's a great TED Talk Temple Grandin did in 2010. Take a look and enjoy learning!


  1. I saw this movie a few years ago and it was fascinating. She certainly turns around conventional thought about autism.

  2. Do you see a resemblance between Temple Grandin and Pani Andelova??? Also, Temple reminds me of the little girl who has been on the Ellen show that knows so much about all the presidents...have you seen her? They talk similarly! I need to see that movie sometime!
