The fascinating and extraodinary Dr Temple Gardin. Born autistic, she has studied, overcome, and utilised her challenges with autism to become a professor of animal science, a designer of livestock handling facilities, a bestselling author and speaker on the subjects of autism and animal behavior. She is the first to document the similarities between autistic view of the world and animal view of the world, thus pointing to strong naturistic intelligence in autistic people.
