Temple Grandin: The world needs all kinds of minds

My wife sent me this TED video on a Temple Grandin who is a lady with autism.   This is a must watch as is the HBO movie titled Temple Grandin.

TED brings out the following:
"Temple Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, talks about how her mind works -- sharing her ability to "think in pictures," which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She makes the case that the world needs people on the autism spectrum: visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids."
 My wife teaches autistic children is how she came upon this very interesting and fascinating person.
