    I’m so glad to see this clip of the HBO movie. I love Temple Grandin’s books. I loved the one about how her autism enabled her to see what animals were seeing/thinking/feeling (especially cattle). I learned a lot from it.

    Videos titled, “Autistic Adult in Crisis Goes Unnoticed” and “Shocking Patient Neglect of Autistic Person” on youtube warrant immediate attention to dangers of managed care and general hospital medical mismanagement of severely autistic patients in California.
