TED Talks are a set of global conferences run by the private, non-profit Sapling Foundation. Their slogan is “Ideas Worth Spreading” and we couldn’t agree more. Here are our five favorite TED talks on Autism – they teach, uplift and encourage those with Autism and the people who love them.


1. Rosie King: How Autism Freed Me


16 year old Rosie challenges the notion of being “normal” and why that’s always the desirable outcome! Smart and non-nonsense, Rosie is a delightful person who offers a testament to why human diversity might be our greatest strength. She’s inspire you!



 


2. Wendy Chung: What We Know (and What We Don’t Know Yet)


Geneticist Wendy Chung delivers the facts about autism spectrum disorder in a clear and direct talk, clarifying what we know and what we don’t know yet! Chung and her team share what they’ve learned from studies, treatment and careful listening, as well as what still needs our attention.



3. Faith Jegede: What I’ve Learned From My Autistic Brothers


Faith is a writer who shares her delightful, moving and touching stories of growing up with two brothers on the spectrum. Faith’s warmth and love for her brothers – even in the midst of struggling to understand them – is a true testament to the siblings of children with Autism and their heroic hearts. This one will move you!



4. Temple Grandin: The World Needs All Kinds of Minds


One cannot imagine a meaningful discussion of Autism without the great Temple Grandin and this TED talk does not disappoint. Using herself as an ideal example, Temple discusses the way her mind works and expands that to make a case that the world needs more minds on the spectrum! Visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers – the world needs all of them.



 


5. Ajit Narayanan: A Word Game To Communicate In Any Language


While this TED talk is not specifically about people with Autism, Ajit has invented a fascinating language concept called FreeSpeech. Designed to assist children who have trouble speaking, FreeSpeech is an app that thinks about language in pictures, and relates words and concepts into “maps.” The potential for children with Autism is exciting to contemplate!
