"This book is insightful, helpful, and hopeful - just like the woman who wrote it! It is a 'how-to' guide that I am confident will leave any reader feeling both informed and inspired." (Emily Gerson Saines, Executive Producer of the HBO movie Temple Grandin)

Publisher's Summary

As many as 1.5 million children and adults in the U.S. have autism. The lifetime cost of caring for a child with autism ranges from $3.5 to $5 million. Our children - our future - are at stake. The world needs to listen to what Temple Grandin has to say.
In this innovative audiobook, Dr. Temple Grandin gets down to the REAL issues of autism, the ones parents, teachers, and individuals on the spectrum face every day. Temple offers helpful do's and don'ts, practical strategies, and try-it-now tips, all based on her "insider" perspective and a great deal of research. These are just some of the specific topics Temple delves into:

How and Why People with Autism Think Differently
Economical Early Intervention Programs that Work
How Sensory Sensitivities Affect Learning
Behaviors Caused by a Disability vs. Just Bad Behaviors
Teaching People with Autism to Live in an Unpredictable World
Alternative Medicine vs. Conventional Medicine
Employment Ideas for Adults with Autism
This revised and expanded edition contains revisions based on the most current autism research, as well as 14 additional articles including "The Role of Genetics and Environmental Factors in Causing Autism", "Understanding the Mind of a Nonverbal Person with Autism", "Finding Mentors and Appropriate Colleges", and many more!

Any additional comments?

The over-the-top introduction / forword in this book almost made me stop listening. Temple is a great person, but her works and personality can stand on its own without the glorification going on in the introduction part. The whole intro reeks over gratification toward Temple, Namedropping and recounting of how good a friend she is to temple, and untasteful descriptions of people that where not able to help her with her son (like when she sarcastically referred to the psychiatrist that was in the middle of a nervous breakdown). The text by temple was itself good, but the forward / introduction part almost made me stop the audio. But just so it’s clear – Temple, I love you!

An informative look at autism

If you could sum up The Way I See It in three words, what would they be?


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Way I See It?

The whole book was pretty memorable really.

What three words best describe Laural Merlington’s voice?

Sounds strangely like Betty White
Slightly robotic - sometimes it was hard to know whether it was a human or a computer program reading which distracted from the text somewhat; she's not always a smooth reader

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The book is more informative than moving

Any additional comments?

I originally thought I'd skip chapters not so relevant to my situation, but I ended up listening to the whole book, enthralled. A lot of a-ha moments and much information that I can use.

What made the experience of listening to The Way I See It the most enjoyable?

I could do other mundane things whilst reading and it allowed time to pass quicker.

What other book might you compare The Way I See It to, and why?

I can't really.

What about Laural Merlington’s performance did you like?

Different to get used to the accent, but good.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It raised my awareness considerably.

Any additional comments?

Great read, would love to see the film
