Temple Grandin

*Temple Grandin spoke yesterday at CSUC. She believes Tesla was autistic and that Einstein had many autistic traits. She said the HBO movie about her is accurate. She explained that there are different ways of thinking: photo realistic visual (her type), verbal, auditory, etc. She has found most SSRI anti-depressant drugs (Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, and Paxil—the latter has side effects impairing memory for some) don’t work for depression but do work for anxiety and fear. A motion sickness drug works for depression, but has side effects like glaucoma if taken too long. Start with tiny doses she suggests. For natural brain balancing she recommends B6, magnesium, omega 3, exercise, music, singing, sitting on a ball and a weighted vest or blanket for anxiety. Colored glasses help some people with learning disabilities. Above all else, avoid fluorescent lights that flicker.
