|Temple Grandin and myself in 2006|
The conversation was somewhat short, but she drove home the message that people on the spectrum must be in a job that is in their area of interest. These words were depressing for me at the time because I just wanted to race cars. It is amazing though just how almost prophetic these words were because I fully understood this importance once I started working at TouchPoint.
As I said, the conversation was brief and then it was time for her presentation to begin. Once again I was amazed at the size of the audience and the fact that, as a collective whole, once she got on stage the whole room became eerily quiet.
