Description
When the author of Animals Make Us Human and Animals in Translation was born, in 1947, autism had only just been named; today, one in every 88 children is diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. Discussing her own experience with autism and remarkable new discoveries, Temple Grandin joins with science writer Richard Panek to introduce the scientists and self-advocates who are exploring the causes of autism and how we can best diagnose and treat it. Grandin highlights long-overlooked sensory problems for autistic patients, and the transformative results achievable by treating autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagnosis. Most exciting, she argues that raising and educating kids on the spectrum should focus on their strengths as much as their weaknesses, and explains how science reveals new ways to foster their unique contributions. This unabridged audiobook edition is read by Andrea Gallo.

"Grandin has reached a stunning level of sophistication about herself and the science of autism. Her observations will assist not only fellow autistics ... but also researchers and physicians seeking to better understand the condition."NY Review of Books
