old orphaned note without a section - added a section[edit]

I have ordered Grandin's Autobiography Emergence. When I have finished it, I will ad to this article. I'll also write to her and get her permission to post a pic. (or edit the article herself) Danlovejoy 18:53, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Born 1947...[edit]

... diagnosed with autism in 1949 at the age of _four_? ;)

Savant references and categorization[edit]

There remain a reference and four valid citations about the subject's autistic savantism. So, why was the likely WP categorization, "Category:Autistic savants," deleted?

Unless there is reason to abandon the idea of the subject's autistic savantism as described by the relevant citations, I will replace the categorization. (talk) 15:17, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your input. While there is a tendency to label all highly intelligent autistics as savants, Temple Grandin is not a savant. The sources claiming that she is may be unreliable in this respect. I would be happy to go into more detail if you are still not convinced. --Wikiman2718 (talk) 15:29, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
Under further examination, at least one reliable-looking sources has argued that she is a savant based on her brain structure. However, she lack most of the behavioral characteristics of a savant. Whether she is or is not a savant may be a matter of dispute. --Wikiman2718 (talk) 15:49, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
