Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is the most accomplished and well-known adult with autism in the world. I just learned of her last night while watching the Emmy’s. If I had HBO, I most likely would have watched the movie and known about her. My first experience with autism came when I was an elected member on the Lucas County ESC school board and had the opportunity to approve community schools. The Autism Model School was established as one of the first community schools in Ohio in 1998.
