Product Description

Used Book in Good Condition

A Thorn in My Pocket is Eustacia Cutler's story of raising her daughter, Temple Grandin, in the conservative
Leave-it-to-Beaver world of the fifties, a time when children with autism were routinely diagnosed as infant
schizophrenics and banished to institutions. She tells of her fight to keep Temple in the mainstream of family,
community, and school life, how Temple responded and went on to succeed, as Ms. Cutler puts it, beyond my wildest
dreams. Ms. Cutler also explores the nature of the autism disorder as doctors understand it today, and how its
predominant characteristics reflect our own traits in an exaggerated form. Insightful chapters include: And Baby Makes
Three As the Twig Is Bent Childhood The Separate Worlds Begin Things Fall Apart And Start All Over Again The End of
Childhood Then What Happened? Looking for the Source The Legacy of Genes What It Means to Be Human
