I am a fan of Temple Grandin. Her book Thinking in Pictures is one of my favorites and remains an amazing testimony about parental support, learning styles and empathy. She is speaking in Evanston tomorrow, May 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Welsh-Ryan Arena on Northwestern University’s campus, 2705 Ashland Avenue. The event is free and open to the public. If you care about someone on the autistic spectrum with learning issues, I recommend attending. You can also register for the event here.
