Emergence: Labelled Autistic by Temple Grandin
Book DescriptionTemple Grandin was diagnosed as being autistic at the age of three. An intelligent child with a thirst for knowledge, but unable to properly express herself or control her own behavior, Temple struggled through grade school. Eventually, her disruptive behavior forced her expulsion from a "normal" school and enrollment at a school for autistic children. There Temple fared better, but she began to suffer from "nerve attacks." Through working at the school's farm, Temple learned about cattle presses, which are used to calm nervous livestock. After building her own press, Temple Grandin used it to successfully control her nerve attacks, and for all intents and purposes, cure her autism. Reading this book is an adventure. There is no other book like it-even remotely like it. The reason is simple. The author has a story to tell, a true story, one that is so breathtakingly unusual you will think it to be mere fiction.
