Dr. Grandin’s passion is in full force as she clearly defines what parents and kids need to be doing and how to prepare for the next stage of their lives. Her philosophy of “Mentors are attracted to talent” offers as a great reminder of getting kids “doing” things that fit their ability.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What problems is she seeing in the autism community?
  • Why it is important to stretch kids abilities.
  • The three different types of thinkers and how they learn.
  • How she thinks in pictures, and how she uses this to succeed.
  • Why young kids should learn to work early.
  • How parents can help kids make friends & more.

This is a partnership between us and the listeners.
