Life through the eyes of Temple Grandin: A Silent Movie

“A silent movie” is a title that comes to mind when I read this article. Temple Grandin, a women who invented a mechanism that calms cattle before getting slaughtered. A women who’s idea was inspired by her calming strategies through living a life with autism. Temple Grandin’s style of writing allows me to understand the content in a way that she understands life; through pictures and imagery. I believe this is how my sister, Kyla who also has autism, views the world. At the end of her article, she establishes that if she could snap her fingers and be “normal”, she wouldn’t change a thing. Learning about how Kyla’s brain may work and figuring out ways to help the pictures she sees be bright and colourful, is my favourite part about being her sister.
