'An extraordinary source of inspiration for autistic children, their parents - and all people' Time

It's estimated that one in almost a hundred people are diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum but there is far more hope for them today than ever before thanks to groundbreaking new research.

In this fascinating and highly readable book, Temple Grandin offers her own experience as an autistic person alongside remarkable new discoveries about the autistic brain, as well as genetic research. She also highlights long-ignored sensory problems as well as the need to treat autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagnosis. Most exciting of all, she argues that raising and educating children on the autistic spectrum needs to be less about focusing on their weaknesses, and more about fostering their unique contributions.

Review:

"An extraordinary source of inspiration for autistic children, their parents - and all people." (Time)

"The Autistic Brain can both enlighten readers with little exposure to autism and offer hope and compassion to those who live with the condition." (Scientific American)

"Grandin has reached a stunning level of sophistication about herself and the science of autism. Her observations will assist not only fellow autistics and families with affected members, but also researchers and physicians seeking to better understand the condition." (Jerome Groopman The New York Review of Books)

"Grandin has helped us understand autism not just as a phenomenon, but as a different but coherent mode of existence that otherwise confounds us...She excels at finding concrete examples that reveal the perceptual and social limitations of autistic and "neurotypical" people alike." (New York Times)

Book Description:

Understanding the autistic brain by 'one of the most accomplished and well-known adults with autism in the world
