Not sure if you have seen the HBO special about Temple. If you haven’t, I believe it is still running on demand. The movie is a wonderful depiction of her life and her successes and how she utilized her strengths to become a widely published author and successful entrepreneur. I also wanted to pass along this info I received on another board regarding a talk that Temple is giving…if you have the chance, you should register to see it.
I happen to have a great article that she wrote about “choosing the right job for people with Autism or Asperger’s.” Temple provides her insights as it relates to people with autism or Aperger’s and selecting the right job that highlights the individual’s strengths. If your interested in reading the article, please let me know and I will get you a copy! Enjoy. Hope the weather gets better.
