In this Ask Dr. Love radio show, Dr. Jamie Turndorf (aka Dr. Love) takes her audience on a tour inside the autistic mind with her special guest, Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who has captured the world's heart. She is a doctor of animal science and professor at Colorado State University, a bestselling author, autism activist, and consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior. She also created the "hug box," a device to calm autistic children. The subject of the award-winning 20102 biographical film, Temple Grandin, she was listed in the Time 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world in the "Heroes" category.
Temple feels more comfortable addressing large audiences, so this is a particularly rare opportunity to share in this intimate conversation with Temple who will be talking about why the world needs different kinds of minds, including the fact that autistics are visual rather than verbal thinkers. She will also be discussing her passion for helping young autistics develop their abilities rather than focus on their limitations.
Temple will also speak about her sensory-based abilities, which enable her to tune into cows and understand their fear memories. Her abilities have revolutionized the way cows are handled for slaughter.
For the first time, Dr. Turndorf will be publicly sharing her own very unusual brain functions--probably resulting from her very early birth followed by extremely high fevers during childhood-- including her ability to communicate with domestic and wild animals. Despite the fact that she is not autistic, the parallels between Temple's brain and her own suggest that, perhaps, we all have abilities that we don't access. Join Dr. Turndorf for what will surely be a fascinatingly informative and uplifting discussion.
