Temple Grandin on 'The Autistic Brain'

Monday, April 29, 2013

Back in 1947, when Temple Grandin was first born, autism had just been named as a neurological disorder. Sixty plus years later, autism is a household world, thanks in part to her work.

Grandin was diagnosed with autism at age three, and went on to become America’s most well-known autism activist, as well as a doctor of animal science, a professor at Colorado State University, and a bestselling author.

Her newest book, in stores tomorrow, is called, “The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum.”

A major medical insurance company just changed the billable codes they would accept for oral motor and speech therapy. It will not pay for "autism". It must be a traumatic brain injury or a disease. Perhaps that's the reason behind the change in nomenclature?
