Sm spectrum I ve been mainstreamed meaning never put in special education but instead with a classroom with neurotypical normal kids my entire life And never have I been so happy to have been raised as such I was dubbed highly gifted in fourth grade I did honors and AP classes for everything but math I went to UCSB majored in Japanese went to Japan and lived there while going to ICU in Tokyo and graduated with a decent GPA in 2007In short I am an autism success story and success stories are not often talked about which is incredibly frustrating We are always spoken of in softer terms couched in tough stuff and it s as if we re surrounded by eggshells upon which everyone has to walk onWe re tougher than that And people like Temple Grandin Bill Gates and others only prove thatThat being said I ve found it incredibly hard to find books that deal with autism or people with it that actually take us seriously Much like I have massive problems with Autism Speaks with wanting to shove everyone in Special Ed instead of mainstreaming when it s an option seriously guys it s like trying to shove the GLBT community back in the closet I also have problems with a lot of YAMG books that have tried and failed to tackle the concept and issue of autism while giving respect to the individuals who have itI m happy to announce that this fabulous little book does both tackles the subject gives the subject respect AND is wonderfully easy to understand for the age of any person reading it Sy Montgomery has really done Grandin a solid here and has captured her life very elouently If you re trying to find a book to introduce the issue of autism to any age group but especially the youngest ones I highly recommend this biography that speaks of the blossoming neurodiversity movement through Grandin s experiencesGrandin herself gives us a very simple introduction getting our feet wet as the audience telling us very briefly about her life and how autism affects her as well as the goals of the biography in general This is a very straightforward yet gentle way to ease people into the subject matter to come and it automatically got my attentionAs for Montgomery she has done an absolutely fantastic ob with the whole book From its style of storytelling as if this were fiction and not fact to the tidbits on how to help kids with autism explaining about the condition and an extensive bibliography at the end giving us a lot resources for those who want to read up on Grandin What absolutely chilled me and in a good way was the way she explained how those with autism present company included experience the physical senses and how sometimes those senses are on fire I ve never seen anyone be able to describe how sensory overload so simply and so well before and for that I m profoundly grateful I too have sensory overload problems and I ve tried in the past to explain how it works but failed Now I have a great reference for people who want to know how it worksThis book balances autism education and Grandin s life story very well both in easy to digest forms To be blunt we need "books like this about those with autism both in all genres By the " like this about those with autism both in all genres By the of the book Montgomery builds a steady excitement that will make you want to cheer for Grandin and her accomplishments as well as give those who *Know Those With Autism A *those with autism a way at looking at them and interacting with them The comparison with how animals think and how some of those with autism on the spectrum think was spot on and I think it ll definitely help neurotypical kids understand about aneurotypical kids a bit better It also talks a lot about animal rights how Grandin s work ties into them and how important they are never a bad thing to introduce to a young audience While it does make some sweeping generalizations about Big Agriculture and livestock farming in general that I wasn t really into it s at least something to get the conversation goingBut uite possibly my favorite part Grandin s final tips to kids with autism on how to manage it on their own in order to thrive They re great pointers and it brought a smile on my face because I only got a fraction of that advice after getting diagnosed Now it s there for future generations to enjoy and nothing makes me happier than thatSo if you re looking for a respectful elouent way to introduce autism to anyone of any age pick up Temple Grandin It s made my best of 2012 so far list and its place there is well deserved Temple Grandin is out now from Harcourt so be sure to check it out it s seriously one of the best books on autism and on Grandin that I ve read yetposted to goodreads shelfari librarything and birthofanewwitchwordpresscom.
