This review is from: Thinking in Pictures (Paperback)
I found this book really fascinating and I have also seen the Horizon documentary featuring Temple Grandin. She is very inspirational for me, particularly as I have a son who is on the autistic spectrum (asperger's/HFA). He also seems to be a visual thinker and he makes lots of pictures out of objects probably based on things he has seen that interest him. They are quite complicated (he is four and a half years old). He also makes quite complex patterns. He is also very good at making things out of lego like drills, houses, airplanes. Both my husband and I had grandfathers who were very good with their hands and could fix anything, build models etc. Yet he does not interact with children very well outside his family and is struggling at school. I think he has sensory issues similar to Temple Grandin's. Anyway, time will tell how he develops. It is a very interesting read and I would recommend it to any parent/carer of a child who is developing in a different way.
