1:03

we happen here at the mission feeder most every thursday at from september

1:08

through april

1:09

it

1:10

the name is not only a great name it is the name of a great woman who's the

1:14

patroness of our series he conceived of this

1:17

as away for students at the school of art and design and faculty do you have a

1:21

way of

1:23

connecting with creative leaders out there in the real world and lucky for

1:27

you

1:28

it is at open class for the community cell

1:31

you are free to join us every thursday

1:41

being are opening event of the year

1:43

right just wanted to take a moment to give you some thoughts on the title of

1:47

the season

1:49

of translation

1:53

all acts of translation are acts of communication

1:57

the edinburgh old difficult visual musical station i'll

2:01

and those who don't or even animal behavior is we're going to hear about

2:05

today

2:06

the progress of our civilization is based on our ability to communicate

2:11

our own individual perceptions of the world around us

2:16

communication lifts barriers between us

2:18

it illuminates understanding and heightens our sensitivity and awareness

2:22

of things outside of ourselves

2:26

brings the other into our view

2:28

things gaining meaning through association

2:33

translation cultivates sensitive thinking

2:36

which is this

2:38

that i find

2:41

foundation of creativity which is what

2:43

we want to hear a lot about this year

2:46

so as we listen to the penny stansky cursor their creations and translate

2:50

their perceptions to us

2:51

we should leave behind our own preconceived notions and keenly observed

2:56

and remember that once an idea is released into the world that has a power

3:00

all it's grown

3:02

and that the idea itself is not the and results the rather

3:06

this is the beginning of the transformation that has the power to

3:10

propel

3:11

it's like planting a seed in your garden

3:13

and we had to engage these acts of translation in our own frame of

3:17

reference our own contacts

3:20

our own structures of perception and help them to grow

3:23

because after all the danger of knowledge

3:27

is that will learn from its

3:29

and the power of communication

3:32

is that we can learn from each other

3:36

ideas begat ideas in its ideas that change the world and we have a lot of

3:40

folks in here that can communicate together about all the so

3:43

each week at the penny san series

3:46

through months of directing counters with the presenters in their idea as the

3:50

most of all with each other here

3:53

we should do excellence and

3:55

and be prepared to interpret and share our own deductions

3:59

paving the way for our very own acts of translation

4:03

so and hope you can ob

4:05

6:35

entered action about temple grandin see a more time with the actual temple

6:39

more than the hour we have available to us and you can look it up on your own

6:50

time pic

6:51

you know i'm sure you wouldn't be here that she's a pioneer in so many

6:55

different ways

6:56

she is a pioneer as woman in the science fields i ask you what it was like to get

7:01

a p_h_d_

7:02

in the uk eighteen sat in animal sciences she said

7:06

off lol

7:09

she doesn't do you know use extra word sketchy doesn't have to go

7:13

are as a job person with the autism has made important contributions in the

7:18

number of different feels

7:19

she's also as christina mentioned a designer

7:23

an inventor and over lunch today

7:25

we turn to and said temple

7:27

has ever done an exhibition of your drawings and your intentions and she

7:31

said well a small when i thought

7:34

so immediately kristen and i started thinking we need to

7:37

have the solar cell at temple grandin is usual work here at the university of

7:42

michigan

7:43

no way i can make that happen

7:48

so all of those different contributions that temple has made it and in in the

7:54

wake of all of her notoriety which is

7:56

and building up for years concert is probably

8:00

first came to a lot of people's attention women her story was captured

8:04

by oliver sacks

8:06

the title story in his book an anthropologist on mars which is

8:11

temples response to dr sacks question was it feel to be around people without

8:16

autism work miratec recalls and she said acctually contempt apologists on mars

8:20

uh... man

8:22

she has also thought and continues to think

8:26

very deeply

8:27

about our relationship and obligations

8:30

and responsibilities

8:32

four

8:34

domestic animals that we have

8:36

'em

8:42

art she has weeded into that very charged waters and has been very brave

8:49

and made important contributions

8:52

here's a quote from her

8:54

i think using animals for food

8:56

dip is in the ethical thing to do

8:59

but we've got to do it right

9:01

we've got to get these animals a decent life

9:04

painless staff

9:06

we are the animal respect

9:09

dr temple grandin

9:27

it's really great to be here tonight registrar mountain spy talk about a lot

9:32

of different things back since i was brought here by the uh... art

9:36

departmental jessica who spend more time talking about designing men about hans

9:41

prolly have to get a few animal things in their who i want to get you a

9:45

thinking about

9:46

is different kinds of thinking

9:50

understand on ham

9:51

we gotta get away from

9:54

language understand mathematics you kind of get away from purple language

9:58

understand our as a whole world up

10:01

sensory

10:02

based thinking that's one of the things of that i want to talk about tonight

10:05

is different kinds of thinking

10:10

and animals world is sensory xd

10:13

you know i have found that you know some people are very much thinkin words

10:17

others are kinda thinkin pictures

10:19

i think

10:21

pictures of my mind's kind of like approval for images

10:25

and it takes a lot of different people doing

10:28

a lot of different kinds of thinking

10:30

to work together

10:32

different kinds of mine too good at different kinds of things at a graduate

10:35

student in

10:36

she was good at everything on this bad

10:38

and we worked just great together as team

10:42

but what can you imagine a world of pictures sam's taste and touch if you

10:47

imagine that then you can understand

10:50

animals a whole lot better

10:53

now i shall use that's kind of a world of other kinds of thinking underneath

10:57

language

10:58

some mathematicians got ahold of van gogh's starry night and they

11:03

mathematically analyzed the squirrels and they found out that they master

11:07

statistical model of trivial and skin waterfall

11:10

i don't think tank i was planning it out when you get this

11:14

this brings up another kind of thinking

11:17

thinking impacts

11:19

i have found that this kind of like

11:21

different kinds of autistic specialist mines

11:24

there's a photo ballistic visual thinker like me

11:27

has a pattern thinker

11:29

and it's also a word thank

11:32

now there's a kind of palestine s where has the language parse the brain get

11:36

worked

11:38

arthur ability will come out of somebody that has no previous knowledge of

11:43

are and this painting was published in the journal morality by dr proof smell

11:47

are

11:49

and of this person had baby some of the patients he had

11:52

had jobs like installing stereos and cars

11:55

it absolutely no

11:57

interest at heart

11:58

language cover sop

12:00

visual thinking maybe some other mathematical thanking

12:03

you know there's a whatever kind of thinking out there

12:06

once you get to think about thinking now we're dying it's true in a lot of people

12:10

on the autism spectrum is their into detail okay this is a test at test you

12:15

can see the hope the stalls

12:17

or you tend to look at details fees at big letters

12:20

made out of little letters

12:22

and if you flashes up one of the timing is a

12:25

pick out the little letters

12:26

or pick out the big letters

12:28

the person with autism will pick out the little letters much more quickly you

12:33

know it's a few millie seconds quicker i did this test on the laptop i thought it

12:36

was the same on polls

12:38

but i picked up a little letters quicker

12:40

now so it might be wondering what exactly is

12:44

artists

12:45

it's a very big continual

12:47

first of all it's a neurological disorder

12:50

snot psychological

12:52

and has to do with brain development

12:54

and varies all away from geniuses in silicon valley and famous artists

12:59

in fact if you like feinstein and mold sartre

13:01

in a lot of school systems we've labeled autistic today maybe dyslexic or some

13:05

other kind of label

13:07

and then as you move down the continue on you've got

13:11

people to remain on verbal have a lot more problems

13:14

no one has to keep the rendered turn in the mild artist

13:18

there's no plaque unlike the fighting line

13:19

it is a true continual nest the research a shock

13:23

and in the artistic brain

13:25

and social circuits get left out

13:27

but then at least some extra circuits in there for all the good keep stuff i like

13:31

now i have to say that one of the things i really like in the h_b_o_ movie get

13:35

about me

13:36

was faith-based absolutely duplicated all my projects

13:40

that was very very accurate

13:42

and they've used my real drawings and there in that conference from saint

13:46

right now it's really turned on by that

13:49

i was only on fifteen years old when i figured out how to build that day is

13:53

that we had let's say the movies on dvd now just had to say that

14:02

forward thanks i want to try to get people think about is sort of different

14:07

ladies of thinking different ways of solving problems

14:12

some raised and research done by doctor nancy mentioned with the university of

14:15

pittsburgh childhood big normal people tend to drop out that details

14:22

has given example of that must say you re

14:25

sentence about died

14:27

all just anything since i've read now dot block

14:30

they artistic mind except the details of the words

14:35

nascar her mind kind of a mild ought to look at the details and the syntax

14:39

but the normal mind just gets the gist of the whole thing in the south the

14:43

details

14:43

well the problem is if you're an engineer in your designing a bridge

14:47

and you leave out a little detail like on the size down

14:50

size of the steel you use so that makes my fault and that's kind of rather

14:54

important little detail

14:56

and i have found working on troubleshooting whether it's a dog

14:59

behavior problem ort son

15:01

may be a problem with that child with autism or solve the problem it's cool

15:05

is people tend to get to bed

15:07

does say something like will like it s behavior issues in the classroom

15:11

we'll go to the heavy issue in the classroom see i see pictures g throwing

15:14

spit balls

15:16

or did he young you know

15:17

attack teacher minor reminder that deal with those two different kinds of things

15:22

totally differently

15:23

possible theater kesar issue in the classroom

15:25

a fine i got to get in their question question question

15:28

cuz i gotta figure out exactly what the paper ips

15:32

now i'm not really work with pam

15:34

i noticed that killed more afraid of things we don't know it's like he is a

15:38

flight right near the entrance to cattle handling area where cattle get

15:41

vaccinated

15:42

they didn't want to walk into this shoot

15:44

physica c the flag there waving when i first m started noticing these things

15:49

back in the seventies

15:50

people thought that was just absolutely really crazy

15:53

why would you be looking at what cattle looking at

15:56

wife i've made a lot of sense

15:58

because catalog point device in years

16:01

right toward stuff they were afraid they'd stop but their head

16:04

and here's an animal all walking out of the shoot

16:08

after being vaccinated and he's looking right back

16:10

a beam of sunlight on the correct

16:13

now one question i get past all the time

16:16

our cattle and pigs afraid kittens water

16:19

i had to answer that question really early in my career

16:22

so i called a swift plant marisol on the early seventies and oblige cattle going

16:26

up the ramparts with client

16:27

that i got down to a fade yard

16:30

and watching vaccinate cattle

16:31

and they behave the same way in both places

16:35

now you had to get rid of all the distraction saddam hussein

16:38

bike for example

16:40

miss you just have to be on a ranch

16:41

i got down in the shooting

16:43

and look at the shadows you've got their on a sunny day have shadows

16:47

elaine donnelly bright sunny days really dark inside the building

16:50

they don't like walking into the dark

16:52

that's like going into the dark a movie theater kind of a fact

16:56

afghan if i got rid of these distractions

16:58

bank walk right in anna behavior was very similar

17:01

also this plant only have a five-foot six-inch france

17:06

kind of cattle we had maricella striped drama cross cattle those catholic jump

17:12

that fence without even thinking about

17:14

inevitably gets a lot of dissident jumping out

17:17

but they won't

17:18

and they could also jumped out of the trucks we had we had to seoul trucks are

17:22

open on the top may never jumped out of hand

17:26

yellow m

17:27

i was one of the first people who see that details sensory details

17:32

that's what the animals were looking at gita coming up and then see people

17:35

through the facts

17:37

you know my teeth vehicles gone by what are they seeing

17:41

alice seems optus

17:43

but and finding even today after being talking about these things with thirty

17:46

five years

17:47

when i do a cattle handling lecture crystal after show a picture of the slot

17:50

of peace a changing and down the students like take it out

17:54

why do i have to keep showing apt people don't take it out

17:57

it's like i got a big identity checklist i know my webpage if written checklists

18:02

all things they can verbally go down

18:04

and get rid of the things the scare cat

18:07

i notice how the horse and his deeper haven't here on each other

18:11

and then the other key areas on

18:13

make

18:14

and one thing will be a great scene and they're showing which way the horses

18:17

here scott

18:19

you gotta be observant

18:21

well i want to try to do is to get you to emptor

18:23

a more sensory based kind of moral

18:26

and originally i now have don't have my slides into talking about animal issues

18:30

cousin sis was not art department holland tahoe i was originally told the

18:34

talk a lot more about don

18:36

you know about this more thinking and how that relates to heartened

18:40

engineering and things of this sort

18:43

now i get my co-star chris for just a second here

18:46

and when i first started out on designing animal handling facilities

18:50

commercials and slight some of these don't worry is known for a picture so

18:53

left those at home

18:55

lexico solomon briefcase that they're not miss computer

18:58

that's that's for sure

19:02

and i thought i could fix everything what equipment

19:05

i could but i kept all the perfect system an official problems

19:09

i'd only six half the problems equipment

19:12

the other campus management

19:14

so that they have been working on now auditing

19:16

we got a measure pan

19:18

how many animals for million bella ring during handling

19:21

what you want past mcdonalds on it and one of the big points only about three

19:25

camelot of a hundred moving a billing

19:28

going up in a standout only one out of a hundred conform

19:33

yela plants not to maintain equipment better yes there's still problems out

19:36

there

19:37

but one of the nastiest videos that are out there that both places are not being

19:40

audited

19:41

like the three worst videos i can't think of

19:44

are outside audit system

19:46

but we've got to be measuring

19:48

because we try to make people managed let's get back to management

19:52

a lot of people but we put internet the school's explicitly gotta make all

19:55

schools actually wonderful didn't

19:58

and not have to come to try playing video games song

20:02

and same way to make it so what they could to video games that

20:05

they like to anything else

20:08

now hawaii's thinking and pictures taking pictures is having movies in your

20:15

now listen holds sixteen millimeter movie rials

20:19

awesome deal might not know what those are they are movie reviews

20:23

but it's literally pictures and he had his might think of something

20:26

a picture

20:28

you see from a

20:29

know for a list of picture in my head no

20:33

so if i think about a problem like health care for example

20:36

i don't think about the abstract

20:38

i think one of the quality cotton governments up-to-date salt flats

20:41

tracked an ideological

20:44

icd on announcing a fisherman might have a truck driver had put two thousand

20:49

pliers 'cause he couldn't afford a root canal

20:51

or read about that in the paper now i'm visualizing and i'm feeling it

20:55

or on the way you proper footnote she couldn't afford a go to the doctor and a

20:59

tax rate

21:00

you see i see specific perhaps

21:03

c_m_a_ healthcare problems are

21:05

all specific examples

21:08

now i'm really thinking was different when i wrote my book thinking in

21:11

pictures back in nineteen ninety five

21:13

when i start asking people at church steeples what why church steeples

21:17

i want to pick out the object

21:19

the everybody sees everyday

21:22

but they don't like pay attention to all

21:25

and this is what i found out that my people thinking was different than a lot

21:28

of other people's visual thinking

21:30

and fish all thinking is a continuing

21:33

snot hill and is a lot of not artistic people

21:35

that a visual thinkers

21:36

as people of other learning disabled labels that are visual thinkers

21:41

now i was shocked

21:43

monahan people think about a church steeple

21:45

the most people get the state generalized one

21:48

you see in my mind diffuse no generalized one this only specific ones

21:54

and i start naming off when iraq

21:56

now i've learned from reading the neuro science literature

21:59

that i am going into the primary

22:01

graphics files in the brain

22:03

where most of the people are going into association flat tax

22:06

where you kind of merging

22:08

images together in the general principles

22:11

and if i ask you how sarkar most advancing their own house a car

22:15

on ask you something a not so familiar with

22:18

you know maybe a behold

22:20

maybe not

22:22

maybe some other you know frying you don't see it all the time sri

22:26

even sri

22:27

i see specific ones

22:29

okay

22:30

i'd only see specific ones any flash applicable for images

22:34

there's a great scene and the movie where it shows a bunch of shoes

22:38

coming up in rapid succession

22:39

the movie shows exactly outright

22:42

it also showed the anxiety really well

22:45

and it showed the sensory sensitivity problems it's very very clinically actor

22:49

claire danes became a back in the sixties and seventies

22:52

she also became a before i took antidepressant medication

22:56

i bet on anti-depressant medication thirty years

22:59

and stop the horrible anxiety attack side

23:02

and i have a whole section thinking pitch is all about that

23:06

emily watson guilty jill

23:09

and i a beating at the navy

23:11

no we get a time in the next three months self back on the regular food

23:15

again

23:16

miami antidepressant can make that problem go away

23:21

okay now i want to show you here in saint peter's little bit on the small

23:25

side

23:27

helicity sketches fell into my mind and who cares for not alike

23:31

you don't need a start out with local ones

23:34

and get famous ones

23:36

and they'd just come up

23:37

as a series of pictures

23:41

that's how my mind works they come off sequentially

23:44

they'll come up like google would wait a little puts it out now they're all like

23:47

a big rosa doesn't come out that way

23:49

it becomes sequentially

23:51

now people thinking

23:52

really really believe helped me

23:55

he's got yourself on that i'd like to stefan crush it like employers

24:07

thing about being a visual think of his mind to something something

24:11

i could see it in my mind and i could test run

24:14

i thought everybody could test run equipment no money

24:16

now one of things i had to learn how to do is how to relate lines on a drawing

24:21

with the actual real fight

24:24

and one of these really help music appalling drawing for the swiftly tire

24:28

swiftly had a parking lot on

24:30

and adam water tower helmick what my not

24:34

and i spent two days walking around that plant dot every line on that drawing

24:38

could be related to a piece of sign of something real

24:42

like a square on the drawings of concrete columns held up the building

24:46

around circle was the water tower you'll have to take these things at work you

24:50

know symbolic signs it and make it concrete rear

24:55

the next picture aerial view of the tapes that there was recreated for the

24:59

movie

25:00

and that's really hard to say that really was a trip

25:05

and there's one of my drawings

25:07

and feel like what i was weird

25:10

it's a little blurry and sorry was electrical electronic risking hands

25:14

pulling out the best stand

25:18

but you know if i was really weird when i think it really weird what i had to do

25:22

was make a portfolio of work to show people how michael keaton and shocked

25:26

the world is the second week yet

25:27

i had to sell my work

25:29

and this is a hand-drawn drawing

25:31

and i've made some very interesting observations

25:34

you know as the industry switched from hand drawings to the computer about draw

25:39

a line to publicly

25:40

the people

25:42

that went from hand drawing to computers there

25:45

computer trying to find

25:47

young person that came in that never spilled meeting with their hands and

25:51

they've never

25:52

drawn by hand

25:53

and making a lot of alive mistakes on drawing some of the comeback

25:57

we'll get to that later

25:58

to the thing is

26:00

is if you don't ever take a compass and actually make a circle it only

26:03

understand the senate circles

26:05

i kept trying to every major meat company which we are we are spikes haha

26:10

never happened back in nyc

26:11

can drawing based on a suggesting going back to hand right

26:15

people need to build things with their hands

26:17

i was just read an article in on the scientific american about

26:20

help babies learned deceived by touch

26:23

you're not seeing drawings right there's a drawing of the tip that they use

26:28

destroying a totally set in the movie

26:31

and then in my class akita klassen livestock equipment design

26:35

and one of the things that really emphasized my students

26:39

if you're never going to sign a cattle handling facility

26:42

wanted understand how would rolling weights

26:44

to a real fine

26:47

because it and the other thing is

26:48

i have way out fines and sign it

26:51

there's no absolute right answer

26:53

and i take all the best rice maybe ten different ways of the white outfit all

26:57

worked closely follow certain rules of life

27:00

because teach problem solving skills

27:02

so this is show that basic layout for drawing on a ranch for doing no fax

27:06

nation to cattle and there's the actual thing

27:09

and i actually switching back and forth like this in the class

27:12

so they can see

27:13

how they relate to each other

27:16

here are some of the perceptual mistakes i've seen on the computer aided drawings

27:20

radius point the circle is not in the center of the circle that is in the

27:23

senate the circle

27:25

these came from major companies

27:27

another place had twenty five-foot long case how can you make twenty five-foot

27:31

long dates work

27:33

there's no way to make that work

27:34

now he just looked at the drawing with faster looked okay

27:37

but want to put the scale were on it a little

27:40

twenty five-foot long cases not to work

27:42

uneven alleyways

27:44

and then they think they have gay students can correctly does it in nudity

27:48

would use the compass functions in the computer

27:50

to swing the gates right

27:53

and i have a person who works for me now in markham he'd does a fantastic job

27:57

doing all that most of the cattle sign work now

27:59

by heady monahan drafting table for retiring your for anywhere near

28:04

computers

28:05

and he has had

28:06

he has had computer instructor son

28:08

say they will have a chick cad drawings give peace a good will because he

28:11

learned hand grafton first

28:13

and then after got back from preston computer school

28:17

they had taught him how to use any of them

28:19

the things that are on the computer that relate to him drafting liked compass

28:23

function

28:24

we sat down there and we went through all the other

28:27

well icons and french curve like on the other laid circle prime time

28:33

and he found out that the everyone is trying to smashed a price

28:36

came through some really gone they've never built anything with their hands

28:41

and they had never drawn my hair

28:44

every single major meat company

28:46

now you're talking about things that if you

28:49

actually put things from some of these price if i hadn't looked at cochran's

28:52

take suburban rubber mats

28:56

some can sit on the autism spectrum in a very young will go on perspective most

29:00

little kids don't draw lucky in perspective his prime government

29:04

nine-year-old

29:04

we've got to work on developing strikes there's a lot of porky kids out there

29:08

kiki kids quirky kids dyslexic kids about various different things

29:12

and stores are going to be uneven

29:14

at one thang back something else

29:16

everything was done do promote my ability in part if i hadn't had part

29:20

allison elementary school have would have been a really really miserable

29:23

and are used my part skill in my design

29:27

now used to joke around that a huge internet trunk line in my head

29:30

for graphics like a really big graphics card

29:34

and this is a scanned that was done by

29:36

man team ensuring marcel just at the university of pittsburgh

29:39

got like a giant internet graphics line

29:42

i want to tell you

29:44

other people respect and allah hafiz

29:46

because some of the people are not as a specter award

29:50

so they don't have this great big trunk line

29:54

and there had other sliced taken up here and i had a real big one there and that

29:58

when those all the way back primary visual cortex

30:01

and the other one that lines are going back as far

30:04

i'm all the way back into it

30:06

the picture files

30:07

because my thinking salt fold over a list of

30:11

now is another kind of mind

30:12

i caught the pattern thinker

30:15

mathematicians

30:17

these are people they can program computers really well

30:20

it's visible thinking that's more cap strap

30:23

and this praying mantis use extreme oregon

30:27

he's made from a single sheet app folded paper

30:30

there's no cutting

30:32

there's no scotch taping

30:34

and what you see in the background there is the folding pattern

30:38

for making that the praying mantis

30:41

this is the work of robert lining up

30:43

you might want to look that up on the internet interested

30:46

all kinds of fantastical beast these

30:48

he's making out of single sheet a fold the paper

30:52

this now this is not my mind

30:54

this is a different kind of mind although i'm not good at these kind of

30:57

things

30:58

i'm also finding

30:59

that there's some kids they can do geometry and trade

31:02

and are hopeless accounts for i was hopeless out

31:05

another chance to do geometry trig titanic mistake

31:09

you know how it was not the prerequisite for jockeying trade if you got this

31:13

pattern thank you kind of mind

31:15

and when i bring this up at conferences they just come out of the woodwork

31:17

controls

31:19

here are

31:20

different types of thinking

31:22

full realistic visual thinkers can algebra

31:25

parenting courses your music mines music is practice

31:29

your math mines engineering mines your programming minds

31:33

the parable mine

31:35

often port drawing

31:36

and then i had a student that was a politically thinker

31:39

because she had visual processing problems where our visual system was

31:43

chic chic print jiggling on the page

31:46

and she learned everything auditory

31:48

and which he studied animal behavior sheet listen to what animal sound alike

31:51

and different situations

31:55

'cause when thinking some specific about always pictures my my michael

31:59

pilgrimages how much warmer concept

32:00

you have to form a concept

32:02

by putting specific pictures into file folders in the brightness of the picture

32:07

young autistic man sent to me andy sorting cats and dogs in a different

32:11

boxes in the brain

32:12

it's what's called bottom op-ed

32:15

thanking

32:16

you almost feel think top down for a theory in the face of all the data into

32:20

a minus bottom up

32:22

i for mike theories by looking at the data and i've supports the cific things

32:27

handicapped

32:28

that's how i think

32:29

i thought for example has two different categories his behavior for on the lease

32:33

i protect my owner off the lease i can go play with other talks on the least

32:38

may need to fight other docs

32:40

that's an example of setting up file folders

32:43

if you want teacher severely autistic kid not to run across the street but

32:46

each of the ten different places

32:48

otherwise you might think it just applies to hole

32:52

man on a horse mammogram

32:54

the horse or perceive that it's two different things

32:56

cattle do the same thing

32:58

of course this may have been abused by a writer

33:02

but can be terrible when your bridal

33:04

but he may be fine for shoveling and that night at work

33:07

you see on the ground on the horses to different

33:11

she has a lot though you say it's much more specific

33:15

what i get you thinking more specific

33:17

that's going to help solve a lot of props

33:19

on the big problems we've got the day

33:21

is everybody the government just fights

33:24

we're not getting stuff

33:26

dot we're getting too far away from practical thanks

33:35

i know you young people they don't want to hear about old phone he's talking

33:38

about what happened in the fifties and sixties bulletin

33:41

inmate

33:42

in the fifties the republicans both the interstate highway system and the

33:47

democrats want the mood in the sixties

33:49

that was really really believe illegal stop

33:53

on when you get back to doing more cool stuff because that's how we're going to

33:56

solve things like environmental problems in global warming and find new energy

34:00

sources we've got to have people doing stuff

34:03

not just becoming lawyers and so when everybody we gotta figure out how to

34:11

now both animals and people on the autism spectrum park plot unfpa

34:15

bankers noritake specific information

34:18

put together indicate a chorus

34:21

to form a concert

34:23

so how can learn specific concept lots of different examples

34:27

what am into file folders that are in my mind that hits

34:32

and not others ways he could have a theory and they try to cram the dating

34:36

into it

34:37

why the problems we have today is a lot of people in making policy are getting

34:40

too far away from

34:42

the thing they're making policy affect

34:45

it's not transmitting down into the ground

34:47

into some think that

34:49

works

34:51

here's an example of teaching concept with specific samples to young child

34:55

with autism

34:57

appetite goes up in the air he'll walk up the stairs walk up the hill company

35:01

addict lift up a cop

35:03

and i can demonstrate that i see a picture in my mind

35:06

for each one of those things were walking up the hill i actually saw it

35:09

kill on until next door to my house where it takes to bargain out and go on

35:13

it

35:15

but write-up in the areas to fly a kite on that same field

35:19

teaching math concepts

35:20

teach-in account many different kinds of object pennies bottle caps on

35:26

glide

35:27

paper cox side way dina supporters

35:30

you know that concept applies to a lot of different things

35:33

teach you know liquid concepts well this bottle water

35:36

there's less water in it

35:38

then this full bottled water

35:40

cannot just drinks on us

35:43

now i've got about free forceful bottled water

35:47

yelled and teaching your cock

35:50

cake or something like that are

35:52

so they can kat map a lot

35:54

you know the teach different you know proportionality

35:59

this was so scared of that black cowboy hats because somebody wearing a black

36:02

cowboy hat abuse this

36:04

or us

36:06

you see he associate thing he was looking at

36:09

will not be used badly treated

36:11

white cowboy hats fine

36:13

black cowboy hats paddle wheels on the ground it wasn't quite scary than a

36:17

closer look like at that too

36:19

my head the more scary dot

36:22

we've got to take the different kinds of mines and get people working to pick up

36:27

you know and i'm very concerned off allies working nerdy kids

36:32

are not ending up in silicon valley

36:35

now they are not that's okay

36:37

you know we need and the movie did a great job it's on my science teacher

36:41

really none tricked me

36:43

really really helped me had had an

36:46

i wouldn't have been motivated to go on strike which got shut

36:49

kijiji interesting stuff

36:51

and the movie showed the actual bell labs film i watched in high school

36:55

he got me turned on

36:57

to making that distorted room aleutian

37:00

i spent

37:01

six months doing

37:02

and it made me happy to find out the set designers had a really hard time

37:06

believing that you know they have a direct attacks

37:11

i want you to think about different ways of thinking

37:16

you don't have their people with different kinds of mines

37:19

can work together and do stuff and solve problems

37:22

we to help the students after one customized to be successful

37:26

we're not doing enough

37:27

thinking about what kid to guarantee when they grow up

37:30

yaha last thirteen years old on my first jobs was hemming presses for a

37:34

seamstress it'd freelancer

37:36

i've seen too many kids day that haven't heard any any witness not getting any

37:40

work skills

37:42

nothing lucky enough to be out sort on valley they get apprenticed into that by

37:45

their parents

37:46

but i've seen too many smart geeky kid to kansas ending up on

37:50

nope bagging groceries that's not what they ought to be

37:54

and i've had people say to make what does nothing for this kid to do in

37:57

kansas

37:58

michael yesterday's just feed lots where do you think i could start

38:02

i got started on the picket lines that's what's interesting stuff authentic

38:06

agricultural equipment irrigation para but don't generating stations

38:11

has lots of interesting stuff in kansas

38:15

yall hands

38:17

mentors are essential

38:19

and mentors don't necessarily have to be distant sites to be english teacher at

38:23

could be a

38:24

math teacher it could be held many different kinds of teachers

38:28

good teachers can really yet

38:30

kids turned around

38:32

now let's say you have a teenager is kinda headed into a bunch of trouble

38:36

there's a lot of retired people that might want to mentor kidding engineering

38:40

it doesn't matter if the thing you teach the kid is something all

38:44

now let's say you try to get some agent old kind of computer programming

38:48

that doesn't matter because what you're doing is it turning on the spark

38:52

or maybe a artist virtually young kid

38:54

known instead of flight data making a mask back here behind the theater on the

38:58

graffiti wall

39:00

you know what's on

39:01

get done

39:02

drifting in and do teaching some real serious art

39:06

because they've got to learn how to do assignments not just scribbling author

39:10

everything start wanting our department

39:12

makin use that as a career

39:16

magazine shame so many schools taking out the hands-on classes but i think

39:20

it's a titanic huge mistake

39:29

when i was in elementary school

39:32

courses fifties girls learn selling

39:34

i took embroidery classroom loved embroidery class

39:37

and i also have multipart class

39:39

heated cooking

39:40

in the amount

39:41

friend eleanor we were the first ones to get out of cooking get to take a good

39:45

shot

39:48

modesto and that in high school i did all kinds of holding stuff i took care

39:52

of horses

39:53

if i hadn't had a hands-on facts

39:56

hodges would have been death

39:57

well i took so long to life so much addressed making class a lot like

40:01

selling very much ahead toy sewing machine

40:03

in the fourth grade had a real one lesson about seven great

40:06

you know they can

40:09

modern problem solving

40:10

and it's nothing simple about a simplicity pattern in china right now

40:15

chaotic on those

40:18

i got a new name form complexity patterns

40:23

but practical things teach problem solving skills

40:27

they also teach you

40:28

things don't always come out right i've ruined a pair of pants one time i cut

40:32

the fabric on night patrol the whole project out

40:34

you know sometimes that happens

40:38

we got it gives a different

40:39

kinds of mines opportunity you know we need to be hiring on the mentoring them

40:43

working with them and developing

40:46

art class that was myself asian

40:49

houses just some pictures of those ski under my high school scrapbook

40:53

okay i want to talk about some things you can really mess up kids and i can be

40:56

things that can sometimes really

40:59

fixed relatively easily and that sensory processing disorder

41:02

i had a lot pumps sound sensitivity loud voices heard like a tennis thrill

41:07

there's other people that have gone

41:09

on visual processing problems even though they can't drive and they're not

41:13

blind

41:13

when they go to read the print articles on the page fluorescent lights are

41:17

flickering on and off like a discotheque

41:19

and you can have a prompted many many different no labels

41:23

and for the visual processing problem

41:26

with the principles not dishonest expect we can try on some

41:30

some oil fifty classes pale pink ones pale purple ones

41:34

hailed yellow orange this trial data from pale colors and a final months of

41:38

print no longer trips

41:39

how does that work why does that work numbing us why it works

41:42

it has something to do is what's called the binding problem in the park

41:46

the binding problem is one of the biggest brain research

41:50

mysteries how does the brain make graphics file

41:53

we know that the prayers

41:55

color and shape emotion circuits we know that how do they work together to form

41:59

an image

42:00

something wrong with that

42:01

and the images are binding together right

42:04

and white and color classes might help i don't know

42:06

but the important thing is picking just the right cclc

42:10

now has a picture of a little boy covering up a skier stine sound

42:13

sensitivity problems they can be really real

42:17

sometimes you can get a child over this by ear

42:19

getting to play it on a recording device to the wall volume

42:22

which he initiates the sac

42:26

another problem that brains of problems that his attention shifting so that's

42:29

one reason i hate the cell phone so much of the audience's attracts my attention

42:34

and dan

42:35

it takes me a long time to get my thoughts back

42:38

because attention just takes longer

42:41

multitasking forget

42:43

even normal people can't malic acid

42:48

tracks like texting while driving us a darn thing sucks because it's more like

42:52

asking

42:53

you'll stop telling another thing i have trouble with is remembering long strings

42:56

of verbal instruction softcover abetted things written down

43:00

here's an example of the print donned kind of jiggling on the page

43:06

common problem i'm finding it might be something class

43:09

if i have sixty students

43:11

i will find too

43:13

that have this problem

43:15

amarshall data show that cattle heroic facility works like free half circle

43:18

line like this

43:19

and i have to this product freehand they can't do it is nothing to do with care

43:24

on asking the draw a line

43:26

he put three half circles on

43:28

and they simply cannot do it and i questioned them and i find out the

43:31

hateful russian twice in a couple driving at night issued principally on

43:35

the page and send them out sunglass shopping

43:38

and i had

43:39

one girl comes back to maje set it up hammer economic squares

43:42

because now the powerpoint slides in the graphs to professor shawn who no longer

43:46

jiggling

43:48

bulls this all mike watt

43:49

idaho how we're doing on time

43:51

and i'm so that the clock back here well actually don't know if you want to do

43:55

something na di we're going to take a couple questions right off the audience

43:58

here

43:58

on i'm not supposed to do that we're going to do that okay right here

44:02

and i'll repeat the question

44:06

medic short

44:13

all right let's talk about the oil spill in the gulf alright

44:16

let's discuss that i have been following that

44:18

very closely

44:20

and i have also had twenty years of experience working in the construction

44:25

industry

44:25

and i have been on projects that will run a sloppy awful manner at the same

44:30

ran that drilling rig

44:31

we've got bosses pushing

44:33

pushing to get things done too fast

44:35

take his safety devices off of a quick note cotton pliers i've been there

44:40

and they were used to go out on up well prevent are that they knew was broken

44:44

that's really rohan

44:46

on loyal engineers at the same papers scientific meetings

44:50

saying it was a new jeep wells that the uh...

44:53

that ram share that something that will protect them

44:55

dot pipe unsealed oh well

44:58

wasn't strong enough to cut the new heavier height

45:01

they were running up a lot of interest to the gaskets and ripped out and the

45:05

guys that had taken broken pieces of gasket upton

45:08

the bosses go ahead and look at him out of the wealth

45:11

i'd the pressure test was that messed up they didn't use enough spacers

45:17

it was just carelessness brushing pushed pushed pushed pushed now what i have to

45:21

size we have two issues here

45:24

one issue is whether or not we should deepwater drill that's one issue

45:27

the other issue is salah colleague carelessly run project

45:32

there are two suffer issues and we need to keep this up

45:35

and that was a terrible sloppily run project

45:39

and i have been on those kind of problem projects i've also been on fantastic

45:43

projects that had wonderful management

45:45

and i know a lot on that drool shackles push push push

45:49

there was a shouting match that one on the in there but when the boss is in

45:56

you're being a visual thinker

46:00

how we don't know who really need it now stop this thing i don't care because

46:03

twenty thousand dollars an hour

46:04

but i can just hear that possibility magistrates maraniss breeden you've just

46:09

gotta get it doesn't get it done get it done get it done

46:12

and use five spacers and halliburton saying used twenty one spaceships

46:16

what the contractor was wants to use many more work than you need

46:20

but it certainly ought to be more than five spaces to keep the uh...

46:23

the little pipe centered in the big pipe

46:25

the other thing is is that things are closest to fight

46:28

we're not complicated things conceptually time but broken casket

46:33

you talking about a blade not strong enough to fight

46:36

you're talking about keeping one pipe centered in another height

46:40

i'd you know hydraulic systems have broken

46:43

the stuff that fifth and sixth graders could understand

46:46

you know it was simple stock

46:49

but you see for visual sense to professional think around like a one

46:52

i'll have to take do that

46:54

now i think are the problem is you get boxes that are very abstract

46:58

the too far away you could just looking at the numbers are looking for twenty

47:01

thousand dollars now

47:03

an odd thing about what happens to be prayed for well

47:06

then you've got mass of her

47:09

monumental proportions

47:11

i have a friend that that as a friend runs five drilling x

47:16

and she and she says i'd put baffle to michael's asylum even thought the whole

47:20

oil

47:20

imam brindell election

47:23

and with the responsible people in the industry right now and look at

47:28

interest carelessness brushing and push push push in

47:32

clocks

47:35

walla dot tell the whole things as a harp and then you've got all the soil

47:39

underneath the water

47:40

knows what that's going to do

47:42

it's an absolute

47:44

to some extent

47:45

and if the child had been run responsible manner i would not happen

47:50

okay right here for a quick

47:55

all right one piece of advice for pat autistic child and then i have to make

47:58

his three pieces of advice depending on page

48:01

if it is a young child

48:03

two three and four years old

48:05

they've got to get at least twenty twenty five hours a week

48:08

of one-on-one instruction from an affected teacher

48:12

you know everybody's going to argue about what type of therapy tds

48:16

but everyone will agree an effective teacher one that gets approx

48:20

the worst thing you can do is

48:23

i can't talk surround a lot of different places

48:26

and you have gone

48:27

a whole lot of fun places down in other parts of country with no services all

48:32

atil people to go over there you know the church of the synagogue group or

48:34

whatever you get to grandmothers to get some students

48:37

you've got to work with it

48:38

okay now let's say you can walk older kid on a higher end of the spectrum i

48:42

want to help those strikes

48:44

that they know he's good at heart develop orchestrated nafta's develop

48:48

methods let's figure out how we can get them into jobs

48:51

and then of course you've got

48:52

people in a more severe also people need to understand sensory issues

48:56

the kids screaming at the local supermarket

49:00

it may be sensory every trip is market

49:03

or more easy rest on the skylight five t_v_'s going on at once a scream unfit

49:06

that's price sensory

49:08

people need to understand the century from time to talk essentially problems

49:12

for views

49:13

i think it's hard for normal people to a mansion

49:16

and noisy restaurant that doesn't bother them

49:18

actually might be hurting their ears like you know the playlist etc

49:22

we need to be and we also need to doing a lot of research on

49:25

sensory issues

49:27

social skills need to be topped

49:29

one that's one thing fifty stopped pounding

49:32

now color my hair on my forehead the table at one oh wow

49:36

panel i have to do that

49:39

okay quick run right there

49:54

okay so you don't think inward you don't think in pictures at all

49:57

i have found that there's a few people that one ac ask um what's at right now

50:02

in your mind i want you to put the front door of her house open your front door

50:05

for house

50:06

walk around in your house

50:09

most people will see that

50:10

but there are a few people that dome at all

50:14

and they're they're rare a particular exist in your want your private the

50:18

about the fear

50:20

first in the past that

50:21

one of the ladies i talked to that was total verbal thinker an auditory thinker

50:26

shoe speech therapist

50:28

that's why requested one minute that would feel the u_n_

50:31

your social work out that something or you don't need to have

50:35

visual thinking okay let's say we don't make sure we keep paying someone on time

50:38

we got a few more minutes here for a guy click

50:42

ten minutes all right we can take aggressiveness red lady with the red

50:45

sweater right there

50:48

what gives us the most hope for a common feature

50:51

that's a really hard time

50:53

hard question to answer

50:54

on we've got to get

50:56

we had to work with our young people

50:58

to figure out how to solve problems

51:01

we're having a real problem today with what i call abstract education

51:06

everybody's fighting over

51:08

as fighting over time ideology

51:10

and that for cochran about how do we actually fix healthcare on the ground

51:14

for example

51:15

how do we actually do it with a problem like

51:18

energy problems and things like this

51:20

you know what bothers me that day is it too many people they get incident issue

51:24

up here with the same firemen hearts animals on him but the thing is

51:28

specialist be a lawyer

51:29

who is soooo stuff

51:31

but that doesn't fixed sites

51:33

we've got to get back to figuring out how to actually

51:36

fix facts

51:38

not just cause a massive gridlock

51:40

where nothing gets done

51:42

and some other people that may be the heads they can figure out how to fix

51:45

stuff

51:46

with some of the other geeks and nerds in

51:48

and and some of these kits one of the day with you to nurse in china and india

51:53

computer school

51:54

engineering school

51:56

we need to be uh...

51:58

doing a lot more those kind of things

52:03

document it and i think people close with here

52:08

what was the best thing that my mother ever taught me

52:12

she taught me manners

52:13

she taught me importance of being nice

52:16

you know i was at one of the training on rudeness like

52:19

you know when the fat lady gets stuck at the text and supermarkets

52:24

i was not going to lincoln laughing at her

52:27

that's not nice

52:31

any other thing is

52:33

she always was pushing me do new things

52:37

like when i was really young an elementary school she got me to sing it

52:40

professional level as saying america beautiful

52:43

at the head of an adult concerts

52:46

you know she was always you don't get me a little selling job

52:49

she arranged for me to go out of my hands flanked

52:52

and at first i was kinda scared to kind of some of these things and she said you

52:56

have a choice to go to the ranch for two weeks all summer

52:59

you've got a push these kids suffer

53:03

you absolutely have got to push them

53:06

online's

53:09

they just aren't going to develop

53:11

you know you got it you can't push him into a bunch of bull like asking in

53:15

central wrote

53:16

you got it right careful about that

53:18

by other hand he'll push them some

53:20

they're not going to be itself

53:22

you know when i was very young killers like environment bike downtown dot

53:26

borscht by effect right now by myself

53:30

you know he's going to do things i was taught basic shocking stuff

53:35

and seeing young autistic kid twelve years old

53:38

really high functioning we stop at a convenience store any throws merchandise

53:41

on the floor

53:43

i wouldn't have done that used by high functioning enough to not be throwing

53:47

can be on the floor at their convenience store

53:50

you know it is a

53:51

again i tend to go back to specific

53:54

see everybody here asked me

53:56

what's a single turning point if your life

53:58

there is no single turning point

54:00

it's a whole lot of gradual learning

54:03

you see and giving you specific example see i don't think absolute specifics

54:07

there a few employment

54:08

early education intervention

54:10

anti duct

54:12

by a task two and a half years old

54:14

i was in a single speech therapy school an unfortunate movie didn't show that

54:18

first doctor i went to a new relatives named bronson for others not forever

54:22

young

54:23

that got me started on the right track and that doctor in the movie

54:26

he sort of a compass people i want to put me in institution

54:30

but vibe you've got to do the early intervention

54:34

develops drinks

54:35

teach spacing social rules

54:38

tells us a few of the really important banks

54:41

okay right here

54:44

you have to be a very very quick

54:47

sorry

54:50

now because i think that out seventeen hundred people sitting here i can't i

54:54

can't

54:55

carry on the one on one conversation william sorry

54:58

so i have had a very small

55:19

well up and you are asking that they had to see the movie is very accurate in

55:22

terms of

55:23

showing mike jobs

55:25

now there were some of the other server changed around the reply something

55:30

well how i sounded and what that was accurate

55:34

and communion in terms of showing autism

55:37

specially premeditation i want that on that occasion thirty years just one

55:40

little antidepressant

55:43

that was his very quickly acting like sean visual thinking showing the anxiety

55:47

showing sound sensitivity

55:49

that was roar actress on all my projects

55:52

and and and things visual thinking

55:55

there were some offense that has become preston fictionalized analyze it

55:58

wouldn't make a movie work

56:00

is a two-hour movie you can use a limit to much of the planet

56:12

well i can strike

56:17

opposite of restoring a movie from the forties make me to make it

56:22

okay if you're really nor do we need to go into film restoration

56:26

i'm really sign any i can see you later on the screen and i think we have time

56:29

for a

56:30

tamar really quick ones and then i'll be times in my power to keep it on time

56:40

global meat consumption

56:43

one of the things where i think there is a definite place friend wire culture is

56:47

side

56:48

is side

56:50

getting ruminant animals have pastors as an awful lot of land where but the only

56:55

thing to do with atlanta

56:57

is kaput

56:59

livestock that's going to be channel sheep goats

57:03

and i've been very interested in a lot of the saab

57:05

pasture rotation programs

57:07

where you get the shadowed a sheep

57:11

wilding

57:12

disgraced never heard of

57:14

kaloor wilder beast coming to a small area they mullet

57:16

move onto the next area and you can like that

57:20

quadrupled carrying passed through the pasture because what you're doing is

57:23

you're making a livestock molex

57:25

and not

57:26

just cream off that

57:28

the cake in the candy and leave the less palatable things

57:35

how no one

57:38

muhamed removal has just how i guess a smarter

57:41

died

57:42

all i can say is

57:44

you gotta study hard i've gotten a lot one thing it makes me very happy don't

57:48

want to be emails about the movie

57:51

and i'd like to say no

57:53

but young students is

57:54

study hard

57:57

you know when you're in college need to think about nuclear plants with his crew

58:00

plans can change

58:01

no myrick something proclaim a most i want to be an experimental psychologist

58:06

now one st optical allusions you'll like wives of visual systems to see that

58:11

rumors

58:12

not being distorted nuances fascinated by those things

58:16

but then i want to my pants ranch

58:19

and sometimes just things that come up and that changes things

58:22

now would study arden don't develop your strengths

58:25

on get involved wants other activities

58:29

and i think we got time for one more question right there

58:37

okay this question and answer any discussed

58:39

help it being an animal lover and going into the field

58:42

it was difficult

58:43

the scene in the movie was opposed testicles that

58:46

actually

58:47

and all of a male chauvinist pig ary that stuff packed

58:52

but the thing that kept me going and i was really parbo pieces of livestock i

58:55

don't think i want to go in all the group gory details

59:00

so not bad stuff people did not really bad

59:02

but i think technical

59:04

even back in the seventies and i started there were some people the livestock

59:07

industry that will be you really cool

59:09

like don't want to up any portrait seen valley wednesday where they raised for

59:13

for cattle

59:14

and they handled this can avoid beautifully

59:16

all sold the feed are so we had an arizona we're not michael

59:21

by maybe just go back to this horse picture this computers and a nervous

59:24

breakdown

59:25

making belfast

59:30

okay that actually is a picture of a few darden arizona is very try so you didn't

59:35

have much of we also have shaped

59:38

so novelty feed art i wasn't looking a big mud pies

59:42

no one michael pollan one visited his spirit at our feet jordi was like foot

59:46

deep mud

59:48

so ided seat the cattle actually could be done right

59:53

and all the cattle in arizona has shades

59:56

yash elisa's mother parts country people so what's a thing that structural flaws

59:59

of what's called a shade

60:01

and i have been

60:03

plant that they can take it as a bunch of other places continue start told me

60:06

she hates

60:08

but i could see that

60:09

even out there were people doing bad things there was just enough people

60:13

doing stuff right

60:14

i could see that there was a way to

60:17

to fix things

60:19

well aunt

60:21

probably i've gotten to the end of my talk now

60:23

and why thank everybody for coming and how however wants to know what

60:45

banks

60:47

because we have so many of you in here and there's only two hundred seats in

60:51

the screening room and we do have folks already waiting there we're going let's

60:54

have all take a few more questions in here and i will still convene at a

60:59

screening room coming to the books and i have to have to help out

61:02

effect alright i could take a few of the wrestling at hand

61:06

for the phone

61:11

i can't hear you

61:14

sorry

61:33

of a question concern spaces are people who are chisholm

61:36

the single most important thing i want to get married

61:40

like in a classroom or work space but the autism and also some public disorder

61:44

status artistic is sixty cycle fluorescent lights

61:48

they cut

61:49

you can see

61:53

now there's a new fluorescence ahead

61:54

a faster cycle rate may be okay

61:58

by you know how the new study a work if there's flashing on market discotheque

62:02

now some people have problems with a lot of contrast in the environment

62:06

like god

62:07

on might mice dyslexic students the auditory thinker that visual proms

62:12

week the denver airport out on a concourses doesn't even have to rush to

62:16

flight

62:17

but she got all spaced out there because as you walked a long time course to go

62:21

by the picture windows

62:22

and you go to strike every eight feet

62:25

and walking by almost balloon on straps

62:29

you know those windows

62:30

was some kind of freaking around phnom penh alternating pattern up there

62:34

i was somebody were having a lot of great decorations on the wall i would've

62:38

loved it

62:39

but this other people where a lot of arm

62:42

stuff like that would be better

62:44

so i'd want to like

62:45

maybe make the

62:47

walls rather bland

62:48

if i got kind of his alike decorations that i could put them up

62:52

but i don't want something like striped balls

62:55

but the fluorescent lights if that's the big bang and i'm hoping it's impressive

62:59

might invent at that time

63:01

get rid of the problem is unfortunately

63:03

fluorescence a very energy-saving compared to incandescent light

63:07

so simple thing you can do if you're stuck with fluorescent lights is but a

63:10

hundred want incandescent lamp

63:13

next to the kits task

63:15

also use a laptop computer because that screen doesn't flector

63:20

some of the flat panels flickr i'm not sure what the high death tvs i don't

63:23

have somebody to test them on right now

63:26

okay right there

63:32

that's an interesting question the question was one of these really

63:35

thinking

63:36

visit interrupt my train of thought no it does

63:39

because they can't which is how i think

63:42

you see that's how i think

63:44

and and the reason why i have always thought were symbols

63:47

was a bust i think about something as fact like my future when i was in high

63:50

school

63:51

i couldn't get my head around it unless i actually like thought about actual

63:55

physical taller

63:56

i don't eat or symbol so much now anymore because i have so much

64:00

information i have any internet that's in my head

64:03

seasons bottom-up thinking i kind of

64:04

fill up the internet that's inside here to the google it's inside here's got

64:09

stuff to search

64:10

but it does how wide thank

64:12

i can't teacher site how can i get the pictures out of the other students had

64:16

pleaded

64:17

that's how i think

64:18

i don't know if i don't bring up the photo realistic pictures i don't think

64:22

subsample

64:44

okay question was how do we do you how do we cut as a visual thinker

64:48

communicate better with the purple ones

64:49

that something where i've been getting you know

64:52

at that

64:54

you see when i write describe that pictures in in my mind

64:59

certain kinds of writing on the liquidate like writing directions on how

65:02

we could do something

65:03

because as i write the directions

65:05

i'm seeing

65:07

and

65:08

and i'd then there's other things where i'm from doing something more

65:11

conceptually that detail

65:13

you know this is something that

65:15

when you start thinking about thinking

65:17

jeannie do is find a friend of yours is really verbal

65:20

and just sit down and talk about thing

65:23

how do you think about

65:25

something really concrete like done

65:27

uh... painting up that problem are you know paint your house

65:31

how do you think about

65:33

things that are more abstract

65:34

i had somebody asked me m

65:37

well what do you think about

65:39

catholics

65:42

hikind i can get stupid doug associations that i know a wrong like

65:47

obscene capital smell of different

65:49

states that that's what we want

65:50

but what i started worse are pulling up is like

65:54

pictures from different countries and so that's different levels of different

65:56

types of government capitalistic socialistic too

66:00

dictatorships to war and chaos

66:02

and then sort of like

66:03

looking at these pictures sick even something very very abstract

66:07

like capitalism

66:09

i still think about infections

66:12

you know if he still has to be specific examples and they could be subcategory

66:16

support

66:18

the entire i can't dot v everything still has to go back to specific samples

66:22

that's a real question i got their past the book signing one time

66:54

well the question was did my ability with me you know working with animals is

66:58

stimulating emotionally yes if they had

67:00

and it working with animals as a you know it's a really good thing

67:03

and i was absolute horse from panicked when i was in high school one

67:08

you know show the horse is in

67:10

and died

67:11

mail activities animals can be really good and it's a lot of people that are

67:14

visual thinkers

67:16

don't get hung up on these diagnostic labels these diagnostic labels are not

67:20

the sinus infec right now

67:22

the d_m_s_ five to think about taking out the has progressed designation

67:26

destroying everything in our different levels of autism

67:28

you don't nobody sits in a conference rahman says what we have changed

67:32

diagnosis of tuberculosis something for a colossus worked also malaria small

67:35

area

67:37

fiddles and finds

67:38

that are very definitive diagnoses most other things kind of behavioral profiles

67:43

and white backgrounds hardcore mural of science

67:47

and i can't wait until we get in a much more run

67:49

boring based

67:51

waves of the hope of diagnosing fangs

67:53

but activities animals are really good i've talked to parents

67:57

where they're young chosen therapeutic riding up at four five parents tell me

68:00

the chance for the first words wells on a horse

68:04

newly-arrived horses three good things that happened to balancing activities

68:08

which is really good for the brain

68:09

rhythmic activities and then there's an emotional relationship that i am there

68:13

some kids are having a service dot absolutely the best thing that you can

68:16

do

68:17

and then it might be another child

68:19

where service dogs are appropriate

68:21

because it is very sad sensitivity of the dog barks he's afraid of dodging a

68:26

bill clinton apartment might courtesy of this

68:28

share situation for one kid on the spectrum

68:31

sorus target absent the best thing you can happen for another child it would

68:34

probably a bad idea

68:36

so i tell parents will tried out the next-door neighbors lamp first

68:47

all right next question again every meeting is a more partisan today it was

68:50

just diagnosed more frequently

68:54

and the mild of the spectrum the geeks and nerds and ask for recycling

68:58

i think it is i want to stay elementary school

69:01

to be labeled as per her today

69:03

and one of the things that really frustrates me is where all the old ass

69:06

please most are employed

69:08

and i think some of this gets endo

69:11

fifties and sixties upbringing

69:14

now where i think that isn't increase real true increases some very severe

69:18

autism especially is regressive autism

69:21

with a child seems to have a little language and ban around eighteen months

69:26

to lead loses there's ever a correction

69:29

and it's been documented the scientific literature

69:32

that the regressions actually are re

69:36

and i think that subgroup is increased

69:43

why helping nasa sixty four thousand dollar question

69:47

why line

69:49

i'm you know i read these things about plasticizer zen the water menace to

69:53

concerns about vaccines and things like this

69:55

one of the things that needs to be looked at is is repressive group needs

69:58

to be studied separately from the non-aggressive i was not aggressive

70:03

monument purely genetic test nine have any of those factions and also located

70:07

to alter the at that

70:09

and my words came in a few stressed words of time where gradually got

70:14

better and i was in one of the f_ away what kind of kids

70:16

but we need to take this repressive rules

70:19

where there seems to be a lot of language for the rest we need study them

70:22

as a separate group

70:24

no i think that would answer a lot of questions

70:26

you could just blob it altogether all the different kinds you're going to get

70:30

so much very intimidated and i can't find anything

70:38

okay that's a good question and visual thinkers become

70:41

on verbal thinkers and vice versa

70:43

visual basic continue

70:46

there's no way to make me and a totally verbal anchor

70:50

or make a person that's non would not create visual into a total visual

70:54

thinker but he did move it's a

70:56

because when i ask a question about the trips before about the cause

70:59

the probes and a lot of people get this date generalized outlawed but then if i

71:04

told think hard

71:06

then they can kill specific

71:08

so let's say this is a continuum was their time on this and this extreme

71:12

bulldozed visual thinker

71:14

on the other and since you right there

71:17

in this lady right here in the tam dress you're on the other end here

71:21

now there's no way and i take

71:23

may hear move me to have an awesome

71:27

you could mean

71:28

move me to hear

71:29

or maybe i can move you to hear retakes evidence in the middle

71:33

i can move some this light i can move this on this one

71:36

is a lot of brain plasticity

71:38

but there's also some you make traits dare to interact together and you're not

71:43

going to make me here here

71:46

not much

71:47

did something physical to the brain that wouldn't allow anybody to do

71:57

horse water

71:58

well this is something

72:00

yet people are very well-intentioned

72:03

but we've had some real problems has a lot a whole courses around right now

72:07

things as except those plants down you get this thousands of course going to

72:10

mexico we have no control

72:13

them going up to canada has been to problems up there

72:16

wasn't luckier ones

72:17

the palominos

72:19

izzy got their wish initial plans

72:21

but they didn't think about the fates worst band slaughter

72:25

like people thrown a horse out in the desert what starters and some of that

72:29

we've got to one they didn't think about

72:32

what the alternative this kind of thing

72:35

they don't get picky picky he saw her horses

72:39

but they didn't think about it

72:40

ducted due to replace slaughterhouses boom

72:43

this gets back to the whole implementation

72:47

implementing

72:49

things that actually work

72:51

you know a better approach would be to try to figure out waste it

72:55

you know cut down on breeding is a lot of hard extra unnecessary freeing the

72:59

forces

73:02

because sarah horses have gone face lotion slaughter

73:07

i mean this is this is a

73:09

we're getting a problem now is people get further and further away from

73:12

practical finds

73:14

we're not thinking about it we get to do something to pass along we do something

73:19

what's going to have to happen down on the crash

73:23

and going down to mexico insulin

73:25

to some horrible plant stabbed in the back of the neck would be works and

73:29

going to even a bad boy united states

73:50

about staying at a desk in the house people with different abilities can work

73:54

together

73:57

well i a gift to start out the small scale like i understand it was very very

74:01

good at all recordkeeping stuff

74:03

and running the statistics package such stuff that i'm not the very best step

74:07

but i was really good thinking optics burns

74:11

and we made

74:12

and figure out create a place to look at the data in another way

74:16

that's two people working together

74:18

but i hope left on the night is to get you thinking hotmail

74:21

some of these things

74:23

that are different kinds of thinking

74:25

you see until the early nineties i didn't know

74:29

really know what my thinking was different

74:32

until i cast of church steeple question on the family speech therapists he

74:35

thought as a meetings artist at least eight images

74:38

then a family that was like you to where there was no pictures via an and you do

74:43

drive it's going to make sure you do

74:45

no do you drive

74:46

drive a cock ok i have to ask that question is are going to make sure that

74:49

your you're not a good day

74:52

that its

74:53

has two official thinking you're not

74:55

donate something wrong dressing to drive

74:58

not but driving

75:00

dr while people that are not visual things usually don't drive good and

75:03

people that have this problem with the prince shakes when they go to drama free

75:06

half circles that outlines going all over the drawings

75:10

not big mishmash everywhere

75:14

okay right here

75:23

what did you did he come more a visual thinker i'll one of the things up to

75:28

give me an example of something of a verbal concept

75:31

and i'll try to give you some ideas of how to think about it in a more visually

75:36

our liberty

75:47

now when i thought she has you're saying right gerry saying okay like joe s blue

75:51

eyes and sam as soon as she has said

75:54

green eyes let's say

75:57

but that is superbly now i'm thinking about don

76:00

people i know and i'm unseat

76:04

i see the person and i walked at the house

76:07

you announcing not done

76:09

i'm also getting off the subject in seeing the guy working on the shop or

76:12

something

76:13

which has nothing to do with besides

76:17

for thinking more verbally

76:19

on

76:20

why things helped me is

76:22

is side

76:25

attitude sometimes more explaining

76:27

nugget somebody it's very verbal to read something on a roll gussa nahi

76:31

understand stew

76:34

what i wrote

76:46

okay so i think it's important to have the natural world incorporated school

76:50

for autism

76:50

i think it's good for all can stay

76:52

involved with ratings that gardening and died

76:56

all kinds of hands-on activities i think it's a shame that you know schools don't

77:01

take a moment

77:02

you troublesome class from and things like this is a warning that something

77:05

similar to tom

77:06

we're just getting to separate from the natural world has a great book called on

77:11

last child in the woods richard luv

77:14

that's a really really wonderful book

77:16

because it was a promise to cut the day's people going to separate from

77:19

that's what world my hands on things

77:21

i had to do a book signing at costco world wasn't like a regular family do a

77:25

little talking on the top signed books

77:27

headed to sit there for six hours of the book sale

77:30

let's get really boring

77:31

some i decided to have become a voluntary cosco sales associate

77:38

and that afternoon a sold sixty folks and the rest of the table only sold five

77:42

something

77:43

but then i found it was intersting

77:45

is i would but mainly with what i picked out young carnival language that smart

77:49

to pick my marks they have to approach

77:52

i've mainly approached older couples and families teenage boys i admire him

77:56

pepsi's like too many of the high school so i don't know i prosecuted squatters

78:01

and i think it amazed me was the number of families young kids i approached and

78:05

i've got them i sent a professor of animal science i have a book about

78:08

animal behavior do you have pat

78:10

insect onto campus attack

78:12

a surprising number families where they didn't even have a truthful

78:17

in other words animals just weren't in their life at all

78:21

i think that's a and i think that's a real shame

78:25

anything that we need to be doing

78:26

okayed it we've got to get our school grades up in everything the let's use

78:29

the natural world let's work mathematics into things that i water the plants with

78:33

a certain amount of water a two-person amounts of oil in the parts of it

78:37

nixon different parts of the soil one

78:40

and work math and writing into something you're doing with correct

78:45

you don't make it real

78:52

market right here

79:07

mon i think that's really good more more people communicating with their animals

79:10

but one thing that concerns me

79:12

i'm very worried about this is a caller on the top laga talks

79:15

and forced talks is i'm not saying enough for young people coming in

79:20

and you know

79:22

how discouraging wilson over forty

79:24

and i'd like to see more young people we have to train and dog decide

79:28

yelp working with courses because who's going to come in exchange little

79:32

you know and there's very little money now for field research

79:35

i talk about this in my book animals make human

79:39

they had because we want to solve some of the problems of the environment

79:43

learn more about things

79:45

we can just become aware or politician that's totally abstracted five separate

79:50

for everything

79:59

well thank you very very much john
