History of Autism
Maybe you’ve heard of Temple Grandin? She is a world renowned author & professor on autism. Which she herself has. Temple has written several books & actually has a biopic movie named “Temple Grandin”. The movie shows the struggles she faced, and still faces as autistic person. But, it doesn’t accurately give a description of EVERY autistic person. You may have heard (or maybe not) that when you meet a person with autism, you have only met ONE person. That meaning, that every autistic person is different. Just like every person is different from one another. At Turning Pointe, our teachers are dedicated to help these children live full, happy & healthy lives. They teach them in ways that work for the individual student. They also help the kids have fun in school. Which is usually not a possibility if they were in a normal school with different programming. Over the past 75 years, we have come a long way. We still have a long way to go. But with all the research being done, and questions being answered, I’m confident that we’ll get there.
