Autism self-advocate Temple Grandin noted the importance of mentoring and perseverance for those who work with children who have autism as part of a speech she gave at a Minnesota event Tuesday. "I can not emphasize enough the importance of early educational intervention," she said. Grandin also urged educators and parents to adapt their teaching to meet the different learning styles of children with the disorder. "The autistic mind tends to be good at one thing, bad at another," she said.
