What an amazing lady
Temple Grandin in an amazing lady with a perspective of an autistic person who can give others not on the Spectrum ideas of how better to assist their family members who are on the Spectrum! Her passion is obvious and her information is very detailed and specific, sometimes it's hard to follow, but the ideas are so totally worth learning!!! I've got so many ideas for my son's upcoming IPP, i can't wait to share and see what the team has to say about my new ideas! Thank you.
