Favorite Quote

When we fail to encourage and develop the talents and skills of people who think in different ways, we fail to integrate ways of learning and thinking that benefit and enrich society.

Temple Grandin


Western society and education are built around language, with verbal thinkers routinely coming out on top. Visual thinkers, and all their potential, are underestimated and cast aside.

Temple Grandin is a professor of animal science, author, and autism educator across the U.S.

Grandin uses her story – from being diagnosed as 'brain-damaged' and recommended for institutionalization as a child to gaining a Ph.D. and illustrious career – to advocate for neurodiversity.

In this book, Grandin explains the difference between verbal and visual thinking, and how the education system ostracizes visual thinkers.

Grandin lays out the detriments of overlooking visual thinkers and the many attributes they bring to the table if their skills are nurtured.
