5 Important Ideas that Temple Grandin teaches about Autism…
Autism is learning in motion (for some people), a learning style that does not fit convention is not wrong nor ineffective just different
Autism instead of being something that needs to be “fixed”; can be used to convey old information in a new way
Autistic learners presents and understand information in ways that can help all learners, if others are willing to help present the information
Creating spaces where people who learn differently is vital, as it allows them a place to fully explore in a safe and creative way
People with autism are just as likely to be some of the most inspiring and original minds as anyone else but the only way for that to happen is to foster the creativity
