So what if autism was a natural state of affairs for men?

Life Matters – Temple Grandin and Julie McCrossin - Thursday 17/07/2003
Temple Grandin's first book, Emergence: Labelled Autistic was the first insider account of autism, and in her own unique voice told us of the very different ways in which an autistic person constructs their world. It also told of her journey, from an isolated child, to her discovery of her affinity with animals, to her appointment as a Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University. Her speciality is the care and handling of livestock, including their processing in abattoirs. In the 15 years since then, she has travelled the world, spending about half her time talking about autism and half visiting abattoirs and ranches.  She has also published another book about her experience of autism – Thinking in Pictures.

The Health Report Monday, 29th July 1996  looks at the strange case of Donna Williams, author of several remarkable books about autism. Donna's third book, "Like Colour To The Blind", comes out in Australia next week, and like the others, it tells the story of her life as an autistic person.  Her previous books have been worldwide bestsellers. "Nobody Nowhere", for example, was on the New York Times bestseller list for over a year, and the reason seems to be that they so powerfully tear aside the curtain that surrounds autism.  Her books were marketed as a unique insight into the autistic mind, and they've been an inspiration to many parents struggling for some insight into the closed world of their autistic child.

"We each have our own way of living in the world, together we are like a symphony.
Some are the melody, some are the rhythm, some are the harmony
It all blends together, we are like a symphony, and each part is crucial.
We all contribute to the song of life."
...Sondra Williams

We might not always agree; but TOGETHER we will make a difference.
