A true story that is both uniquely moving and exceptionally inspiring, Emergence is the first-hand account of a courageous autistic woman who beat the odds and cured herself. As a child, Temple Grandin was forced to leave her "normal" school and enroll in a school for autistic children. This searingly honest account captures the isolation and fears suffered by autistics and their families and the quiet strength of one woman who insisted on a miracle.

About the Author:

Temple Grandin is one of the world's foremost experts in the design and construction of livestock handling facilities. Her projects can be found throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, England, and Denmark. She holds an M.S. from Arizona State in animal science and received her Ph.D. in 1988 from the University of Illinois at Urbana. She now is a professor at the University of Colorado in Denver.

From Library Journal:

This book is written by a woman who overcame a severe disability to become a successful designer of livestock equipment. Though professionals have been theorizing about it for years, the phenomenon called autism has re mained shrouded in mystery. The au thor makes a few dents in this mys tique, giving us insights which are rare because autism by its nature generally precludes such expression and analysis of emotion. She combines a personal perspective with relevant research in formation in assessing how autism can be overcome and even, in some ways, turned to personal advantage. This ac count will be significant reading for any professional or lay person interested in autism, and is also a moving story of the human hidden behind a distorting facade. Amy Goffman, Registered Physical Therapist, Lake Forest, Ill.

Book Description Little, Brown & Company, United States, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English. Brand new Book. Temple Grandin was diagnosed as being autistic at theage of three. An intelligent child with a thirst for knowledge, but unable to properly express herself or control her own behavior, Temple struggled through grade school. Eventually, her disruptive behavior forced her expulsion from a "normal" school and enrollment at a school for autistic children. There Temple fared better, but she began to suffer from "nerve attacks." Through working at the school's farm, Temple learned about cattle presses, which are used to calm nervous livestock. After building her own press, Temple Grandin used it to successfully control her nerve attacks, and for all intents and purposes, cure her autism. Reading this book is an adventure. There is no other book like it-even remotely like it. The reason is simple. The author has a story to tell, a true story, one that is sobreathtakingly unusual you will think it to be mere fiction.
