I had not heard of Dr. Temple Grandin until I watched the Emmy Awards. The award winning HBO movie “Temple Grandin” tells the story of a most remarkable woman. She has the determination to live a productive life in spite of autism. Her tenacity to ‘right a wrong’ should be inspiration for us all. After winning 7 Emmys “Temple Grandin” has now been nominated for a Golden Globe – Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made For Television. I recommend “Temple Grandin” available on Netflix.
I also recommend TapToTalk a product developed locally by Assistyx for non-verbal autistic children.
