Kermit the Frog, Temple Grandin, and "Visual Thinking"

It's a beautiful day in North Carolina!   What about where you are?

I saw this video on Visual Thinking and had to post it.  Kermit was ahead of his time (1959).



Temple Grandin, of course, is the leading world expert on autism and visual thinking.  Below is just a short interview about visual thinking, but if you are really interested in her and her work, a simple Google search will reveal more videos, and some of her writing.  She is brilliant and "to the point".


I really like her perspectives on education.

  1. Just found your blog yesterday--it's fantastic! I like your mix of interests. I am a former SLP and I would have loved it if a resource like this blog was available when I was working. The content of your blog is great and also the style. I have a lot to learn from you re making my blog more vibrant!

  2. I love, love, love your blog and have no idea why it has taken me so long to find you. First, I love this post and the video! Second, your content is great and exactly what I love. And finally I used to live in the Research Triangle and miss it terribly. I'm following your blog and will have to come back and work my way through your earlier posts when I have a brain, but just wanted to tell you this was cool!
