Temple Grandin

We watched this as part of a class last night, very interesting...

It tells the story of a girl named Temple who has had autism all her life and even though she didn't speak until she was four, she went on to do great things.  It shows the hardships that she endured not only while at boarding school but while getting her BA, her Masters and her doctorate degrees.  Temple sees things in different ways than most because of her autism, allowing her to see things the way that cows do and to make very creative devices for her Uncle's ranch. 

My favorite part of this movie was watching as she endured, even if she was scared she knew that everything she faced was a door to a new world, thus allowing her to change the methods used in slaughterhouses with her inventions.

I give Temple Grandin 4 out of 5 stars.
