I recently published an article on PsychologyToday.com that put forth the theory that dam Lanza was an undiagnosed schizophrenic. Concerned that autistics throughout the world might be stigmatized as a result Adma's actions, I felt driven to focus more on the topic of autism.
 
Who better to assist me than Temple Grandin,  the autistic woman who has captured the world's heart. The subject of the award-winning film, Temple Grandin, she is a doctor of animal science at Colorado State University, a bestselling author, autism activist, consultant to the livestock industry, and inventor of the"hug box" (a device to calm autistic children).
 
I am particularly honored that she accepted to do this one-on-one interview with me. We’ll be talking about many things, including why the world needs different kinds of minds, her passion for helping young autistics develop their strengths, and her unique sensory abilities that enable her to relate to cows.
 
For the first time, I will also be publicly discussing my own unusual brain functions. Despite the fact that I am not autistic, the parallels between Temple’s brain and my own suggest that perhaps, we all have abilities that we don’t tap into.
