Gift of insight

by Donna S on Jun 4, 2012

I read this book after reading "Thinking in Pictures," which was selected by our university as the 2011-12 Freshman Book, because I wanted to learn more about the world of an autistic child. Dr. Grandin is an amazing woman and her books offer incredible insight into her mental world and how she processes information. As one of our occupational therapy faculty summed it up - the current generation of therapists have no idea of the magnitude of Dr. Grandin's "gift" to them, i.e., insight and knowledge. These younger therapists didn't have the experience of the previous generation who had to learn effective autism treatment techniques through trial and error. After finishing Dr. Grandin's books, the book written by her mother (Thorn in My Pocket), and viewing the HBO video about Dr. Grandin, I view these works as very useful educational materials for health care providers as well as just plain interesting to lay people. I've donated by books and video to the occupational therapy student library so Dr. Grandin's gift continues to be shared.
