About Author:

Temple Grandin Kate Duffy Tony Attwood

Temple Grandin, Ph.D didn t talk until she was three and a half years old, communicating her frustration instead by screaming, peeping, and humming In 1950, she was diagnosed with autism and her parents were told she should be institutionalized She tells her story of groping her way from the far side of darkness in her book Emergence Labeled Autistic, a book which stunned the world because, until its publication, most professionals and parents assumed that an autism diagnosis was virtually a death sentence to achievement or productivity in life.Even though she was considered weird in her young school years, she eventually found a mentor, who recognized her interests and abilities Dr Grandin later developed her talents into a successful career as a livestock handling equipment designer, one of very few in the world She has now designed the facilities in which half the cattle are handled in the United States, consulting for firms such as Burger King, McDonald s, Swift, and others.Dr Grandin presently works as a Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University She also speaks around the world on both autism and cattle handling Excerpted from Temple Grandin s Official Autism Website



Comments Developing Talents: Careers for Individuals with Asperger Syndrome and High-Functioning Autism

  • Jay

    Good for what it is- a career exploration book aimed at youth on the autistic spectrum and their allies. I think it's too simplistic for many adults.A few specific notes-Chapter 6 is unique in how it classifies autistic patterns into Visual thinkers, music/math thinkers, and nonvisual/more-verbal thinkers. I think this taxonomy is a useful starting place, but is overstated. In the autistics I know, including myself, often there are bits and pieces of 2 or all three.I have a few cautions and poss [...]

    This is a good addition to our library at work. I work in a developmentally disabled community. This was big help to one of the mothers of one of our aspergers clients. It helped her understand certain aspects, and be more supportive and understanding of her daughter.

    For my day job, I help people with disabilities maintain jobs in the community. Some of my co-workers, meanwhile, match people to jobs and try to get them those jobs. We serve a few people with an autism diagnosis, so I thought this might help as a resource. It contains a lot of perspectives I hadn't considered before, and is absolutely packed with vocational information, for such a short book.Temple Grandin is best known for her autism diagnosis, either because you've seen her HBO-produced movi [...]

    Very good book on helping your adult child prepare for the real world especially if they are attending college or preparing to go to work. Ms. is the best for helping along these lines. Book contains work book for practicing such events such as speaking to coworkers and interviews.

    I think I've borrowed this from the library about 7 times and then never gotten around to reading it and had to turn it back in. I'm glad I sat down and did it, this time, because it was really very good. More updated/modernized (?) than her seminal Thinking in Pictures, and solid, practical, direct advice to people with ASD and their teachers, mentors, and other helpers. I think it'd be a good resource to have on hand if you work with adolescents or young adults on the spectrum, although I doub [...]

    Great resource!


  • Marie

    Good book for helping my son in his job search. Sending him a copy to help him find a career he will find interesting. Hope it works!


  • Chris

    A random book from the library, but an extremely practical guidebook with information that, frankly, is useful for anyone looking for a job.


  • Doug

    Good book for high school Aspies


  • Lauren

    Excellent and practical advice. I really admire Temple Grandin.


  • 4th-8th

    Many people with learning disabilities have similar concerns when it comes to the work place as the folks on the autism spectrum. I like what she has to say so far
