Temple Grandin at TED
Here's Temple Grandin talking about why the world needs people with autism. She is really amazing, I just can't get over how lucky we are that she is a writer and speaker. I really feel like she gives me some kind of window into Anthony - I know all people are different, but I'll talk what information I can get. I hope what she is NOT saying here is that people with autism who SPEAK are needed, but I think she might be. I hope and pray that Anthony can talk someday. This morning he walked by Maria, who was lying on the floor under a beach towel, and said "blanket". Maria said "Good job, Anthony!". She is well-trained! Anyways. I am hopeful that Anthony can talk someday and if he can't, if he's not meant to, or whatever, then I hope that we can find a way to get him to communicate with us (and the world) in some other way. I hope I hope I hope.
