Review of Autobiography of Temple Grandin The symptom of autism differs from one person to another; the symptom might be severe to a particular individual or it may be mild towards another individual. The basic problem that a person suffering from autism faces is that the individual cannot adjust himself to social gatherings. The individual can hardly keep an eye contact with the person he or she is having a conversation with. Autism occurs during the growing age of a human being; it affects the brain of a person in four major sections such as language, sensory systems, social skills and behavior. However, the basic cause behind autism remains a mystery (Grandin 42-43). The present-day context reveals that the disability might arise due to genetic disorder, environmental insults or it may combine both aspects.

The normal activities that happen in our life are quite abnormal towards an individual who is suffering from autism. The effect of autism within an individual makes the person introvert; the person performs the tasks repetitively, develops the skills quite fast, the learning of the person is unpredictable and the person becomes very much obsessed with certain things (MediLexicon International Ltd., “What is Autism? What Causes Autism?”; The American Program Bureau, “Speaking To the World for Over 40 Years”; Grandin 55-77). Temple Grandin is a sufferer of autism but she has given much of her time in learning her own condition, translating herself to the people who are suffering from autism, and also to the entire world. From the early age, she rectified herself so well that people at various conferences hardly used to understand that she herself was suffering from autism. This reveals that autism can be cured if the individual is rectifying himself or herself continuously. The disability can also be
