Why We Like This Video:

Temple Grandin was diagnosed with autism as a child. In this Ted Talk, she explains how her brain works. Her visual processing helps her solve problems that a neurotypical brain cannot. She explains why we need different types of thinkers and how to encourage them. Understanding how different types of brains work is critical to better serve patients who may have gifts of their own.
