    She has autism and sees in pictures the way animals do. I'm reading her new book Animals Make Us Human. So far I'm hooked. It's about the emotional lives of animals and how we can fullfill their emotional needs. Any one else reading it?

    I flipped through it at a friend's house and read most of the chapter about dogs. She is very interesting. I'm going to see if they have it at the library.

    Went to a conference on Autism a few summers ago - she was the main speaker.
    She is a fascinating woman!

    They are making a movie about her--I think Claire Danes may play her.

    She spoke at the Missouri Livestock Symposium a few times while I was going to school there. Very cool lady!

    The book is good and the parallels between the animals and autism are amazing.
