Different…Not Less

Different...Not Less : Inspiring Stories of Achievement and Successful Employment from Adults with Autism, Asperger's, and ADHD (Revised & Updated)

Temple Grandin offers the world yet another great work, an inspiring and informative book that offers both hope and encouragement.

In these pages, Temple presents the personal success stories of fourteen unique individuals that illustrate the extraordinary potential of those on the autism spectrum. One of Temple's primary missions is to help people with autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and ADHD tap into their hidden abilities. Temple chose these contributors from a wide variety of different skill sets to show how it can be done. Each individual tells their own story in their own words about their lives, relationships, and eventual careers. The contributors also share how they dealt with issues they confronted while growing up, such as bullying, making eye contact, and honing social skills.

Different...Not Less shows how, with work, each of the contributors:

Found invaluable mentors
Learned skills necessary for employment when young
Became successfully employed
Developed self-confidence
Faced the challenges of forming and maintaining relationships
(and sometimes) Raised families
