Dr. Temple Gradin, the awesome autistic genius who revolutionized the treatment of animals in slaughterhouses was interviewed for a second time on Terry Gross today. As usual, she gave a fantastic interview about the ethical treatment of food product animals but Ms. Grandin also touched on an awesome aspect of a child learning: Skip Algebra and let the autistic ( of a certain type) kid move on to Geometry and Trig watch ’em go! That was totally me at my art based high school!
I just love this lady! I think you will too. Here’s the link to her interview with Terry Gross. Her comment on math and autistic visual thinking kids is at the very end of the interview:)
