Emergence: Labelled Autistic Summary


Emergence: Labelled Autistic by Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin was diagnosed as being autistic at the
age of three. An intelligent child with a thirst for
knowledge, but unable to properly express herself or
control her own behavior, Temple struggled through grade school. Eventually, her disruptive behavior forced her expulsion from a "normal" school and enrollment at a
school for autistic children. There Temple fared better,
but she began to suffer from "nerve attacks." Through
working at the school's farm, Temple learned about cattle presses, which are used to calm nervous livestock. After building her own press, Temple Grandin used it to
successfully control her nerve attacks, and for all intents
and purposes, cure her autism.
Reading this book is an adventure. There is no other book
like it-even remotely like it. The reason is simple. The
author has a story to tell, a true story, one that is so
breathtakingly unusual you will think it to be mere
fiction.

Emergence: Labelled Autistic Reviews


Temple's remarkable story is uniquely valuable in helping us see autism from the 'inside. * Her dedication to science and her uncompromising honesty about herself will help scientists understand the links between neurology, empathy, and altruism.' *
Lorna Jean King, OTR, FAOTA, Center for Neuro-Developmental Studies * 'This is the story of a frightening journey which provides the reader with a first hand account of the sense of isolation, hopelessness, and anxiety suffered by autistics and their families.' *
Del Morrison, Ph.D., Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Clinic
