Temple Grandin Wants Kids on the Spectrum to Read Make #makereducation

We love that Temple Grandin suggests reading make for kids on the Autism spectrum. From Make.

“How about this, Make: magazine,this is the kind of thing that a lot of the kids on the spectrum need to be doing, the cool stuff in here!”

“When I was in elementary school, one of my best friends was a girl named Eleanor, and she was the first girl in elementary school to get to take wood shop instead of cooking. I was the second girl in our school to get to take wood shop. We liked to make stuff, it was all about making stuff”
