The Woman Who Thinks Like a Cow

This fascinating program introduces Temple Grandin, who is autistic. She is also a leading professor in her field—animal science. Temple has shattered expectations of what autistic people can achieve, and her latest theory is just as groundbreaking. She believes the autistic mind is closer to the animal mind than the typical human mind. Temple describes herself as someone who thinks in pictures, in the same way animals do. Just as animals can find it hard to learn general principles, autistic people can have difficulty understanding abstract concepts that cannot be visualized. But they can also exhibit specialist skills beyond the capability of people with normal brains. A BBC Production. (49 minutes)
