Temple Grandin and Teresa Woodruff at the Art Therapy Association Conference

Teresa with Temple

Teresa Woodruff, Art It Out Director, got to hear Dr. Temple Grandin speak at the American Art Therapy Association conference. Temple is such an inspiration. She emphasized that as a person with autism, she learned to recognize her strengths, which were visual thinking aka “seeing in pictures.” She learned to use her strengths and tried to see as cattle do, which greatly influenced her work and greatly contributed to the cattle industry. What a great lesson- we need to recognize and emphasize the strengths in our children!
