Ever the arty Autie

It’s All In The Eye of The Beholder


Eye of The Beholder Whilst Temple Grandin is known for her visual thinking, I was known for talking about the opposite – meaning blindness.

This 117 page collection of easy to read essays explores the relationship of significant visual perceptual disorders on the development of imagination, ability to simultaneously process on more than one sensory channel, dissociation in response to overload, the chronic fight-flight state of Exposure Anxiety, reliance on the system of sensing. It also looks at presumptions and labeling when someone has significant visual perceptual disorders.
