Thinking In Pictures By Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin had a rough life not only because she has Asperger Sydrome, but because she fought hard to make it so that others are able to see her point of view.  During her childhood years growing up, many students often made fun of her because of the way she interpreted the learning in the classroom.  She didn't like it when people gave her hugs because it affected her personal space. To relieve her stress, she would lock herself in a cattle shoot and then when the sides pressed inward on her, she would feel immediate relief.  Later on in her life, Temple went off to college at the University of Illinois and earned her PHD in animal science.
