Temple Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, talks about how her mind works – sharing her ability to “think in pictures”, which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She makes the case that the world needs people on the autism spectrum: visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids.

A tireless advocate for people who think differently, Grandin makes the case that we need the collaboration of all kinds of minds to solve problems, prevent disasters, and accomplish objectives. Grandin sees the value in every individual’s ability to make a contribution.
