To talk to Dr. Temple Grandin on the telephone you’d find a person constantly busy, flying here and there for meetings, work and educational projects.  Yet when you research or talk to Dr. Grandin you’ll find out she was diagnosed with autism at birth.  Her parents didn’t take the diagnosis lightly and soon thereafter engaged educators and others.  Today she has made significant accomplishments to animal welfare and is the Helen Keller of autism, educating and doing as much to spread the word that autisim isn’t the end of the world.  Many autistic individuals have made major contributions to society.
