About the Author

Asperger’s. She created and is the facilitator of three LinkedIn groups: Linked to Aspergers, Helping Hands Mentors, and Linked to Aspie Teens. In addition to providing direct clinical services, she wrote newspaper and magazine columns for over 20 years. Most recently, she contributed to The Nine Degrees of Autism, which outlines a positive developmental model of the process and stages adults experience when they realize they are on the spectrum. Past president of the Sacramento Valley Psychological Association, she recently retired from 35 years of a private practice that also served as a supervising agency for psychologists in training. She lives in Sacramento.
Temple Grandin is an international lecturer on autism, a professor of animal science at Colorado State University, a best-selling and award-winning author, an autism activist, a consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior, and an engineer. She also created the "hug box," a device designed to calm those on the autism spectrum. The subject of an award-winning, 2010 biographical film, Temple Grandin was also listed in the TIME 100 list of the one hundred most influential people in the world, in the "Heroes" category. Temple’s achievements are remarkable because she was a child with autism. At age two, she had speech delays as well as other signs of severe autism. Fortunately, her mother defied the advice of her doctor and husband, who recommended she be institutionalized. Many hours of speech therapy and intensive training enabled Temple to speak. Mentoring by her high school science teacher and her aunt on her ranch in Arizona motivated Temple to study and pursue a career as a scientist and livestock equipment designer. She is author of Emergence: Labeled Autistic; Thinking in Pictures; Animals in Translation; Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships; The Way I See It; DIFFERENT...Not Less, and more books.
