Emergence - Labeled Autistic
Author(s): Temple Grandin, PhD / Margaret M. Scariano, MS
You've seen her on Oprah, Larry King and 20/20 television shows. She was the subject of an acclaimed 2010 HBO movie starring Claire Danes. Now read her book and find out first-hand what it is like to be autistic. When a child cries out for human contact, only to shrink away from it in pain and confusion when it is given, what can be done to help? This question - and more - is answered in this landmark autobiography, which has been described as ... a testament to the courage of a woman who has overcome a serious disability to lead a normal life. Today, Temple Grandin is a PhD graduate and tours the country as a spokesperson to help others understand autism.
