“The world needs all kinds of minds!”
This is how Temple Grandin describes himself. An exciting story starring Claire Danes as a child diagnosed with autism who becomes a valuable expert in her field.
Temple Grandin, who was diagnosed with autism as a child, spoke in a TED talk in 2010 about how her mind works and her ability to “think in pictures,” which helps her solve problems with which neurotypical minds most likely would not be able to handle. According to her, the world needs people from the autism spectrum: visual thinkers, thinkers in diagrams, verbal thinkers and all kinds of smart weirdos.
Director Mick Jackson’s biographical film is based on a book about Temple’s life & nbsp; Emergence: Labeled Autistic a> and unfolds in a magnificent way & nbsp; the story of a girl who manages to overcome the limitations of her condition to obtain a doctorate and become one of the greatest experts in animal husbandry. She discovered her interest in animals as a child during her visits to her aunt and uncle’s ranch. She spoke only at the age of four and had difficulty communicating with the people around her until she finished high school. Her mother, as well as some of her teachers, gave her great support in overcoming her difficulties.
