    Description
  • AU001/Book
    The Autistic Brain – Thinking Across the Spectrum
    This is a book written by Temple Grandin who was diagnosed with high-functioning autism. She talks about her own experiences as well as autism science. Grandin introduces neuroimaging advances and genetic research that link brain science to behavior, even sharing her own brain scan to show us which anomalies night explain common symptoms. Grandin also highlights sensory problems and the transformative effects we can have by treating autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagnosis. In addition, Grandin argues that raising and educating kids on the spectrum isn’t a matter of focusing on their weaknesses; in the science that reveals their long-overlooked strengths she shows us new ways to foster their unique contributions. This is a must read book for teachers and parents of children diagnosed with autism. The book also discusses inclusion, literacy, career ideas and connecting ASD students to standards based content. This book is a must read for educators working with ASD students.
