Durch die gl serne T r Lebensbericht einer Autistin

Author: Temple Grandin
Publisher: Verlag Rad und Soziales
ISBN:
Release Date: 2014-01-18
Genre: Psychology

Der große amerikanische Kinoerfolg „Rain Man“ erzählt die Geschichte des Autisten Raymond mit anrührender Unmittelbarkeit und unpathetischer Leichtigkeit. Ebenso eindringlich und geradeaus ist die Geschichte der Autistin Temple Grandin, die übrigens mithalf, „Rain Man“ - Hauptdarsteller Dustin Hoffman auf seine anspruchsvolle Rolle vorzubereiten. Aus ihrer außergewöhnlichen Perspektive schildert Temple Grandin ihren zähen Kampf gegen die bizarren Symptome des Autismus: etwa das Unvermögen, ihre Bewegungen zu kontrollieren, die Besessenheit mit einer Beschäftigung, ihre Geräuschempfindlichkeit, die Überreiztheit ihres Nervensystems überhaupt, oder ihre anfängliche totale Unfähigkeit, mittels Sprache oder auch nur Körperkontakt eine Verbindung zur Außenwelt herzustellen - obwohl sie gerade dies sehnlichst wünschte. Dass es ihr schließlich dennoch glückte, sich aus ihrem gläsernen Gefängnis zu befreien, verdankt sie ihrem eigenen Erfindungsreichtum: Sie konstruierte einen Apparat, mit dessen Hilfe sie körperliche Berührung zulassen, aber auch kontrollieren konnte. Diese „Zaubermaschine“ wie auch die liebevolle Zuwendung einiger weniger Menschen öffneten ihr den Weg durch die gläserne Tür in die reale Welt.
