About the Author

Dr. Temple Grandin (born August 29, 1947) is an American doctor of animal science, a professor at Colorado State University, a best-selling author, an autistim activist, and a consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior. She also created the "hug box," a device to calm those on the autism spectrum. The subject of an award-winning, 2010 biographical film, Temple Grandin, she also was listed in the Time 100 list of the one hundred most influential people in the world in the "Heroes" category.


As a special needs teacher I found the pocket guide incredibly helpful. It covers a wide variety of content including behaviors and learning, social skills, anger management, desensitization to loud sounds, sensory development, the autism brain, and even careers for adults with autism. I am very familiar with Dr. Temple Grandin's other books, and this is essentially a condensed sampling from them, but this one I keep in my desk for quick access. - Academic's Choice Award Reviewer See more at: http: //
