Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships

Temple Grandin and Sean Barron

Both born with autism, Temple Grandin and Sean Barron now live famously successful social lives. However, this wasn’t always the case.

Temple’s logical mind controlled her social behavior. Logic informed her of the decision to obey social rules and avoid unpleasant consequences.

Sean’s emotions controlled his social behavior. Baffled by social rules, isolated and friendless, he made up his own social rules and applied them to others. When others inevitably broke his rules, he felt worthless and unloved.

Both Temple and Sean ultimately came to terms with the social world and found their places in it.

Whether you are a person with autism, a caregiver in the autism community, or just someone who’s interested in an outsider’s view of society, their powerful stories will enthrall and enlighten you!

This discussion will include:

  1. How to gain social awareness and social understanding.
  2. The importance of finding and then developing a talent.
  3. How to exhibit appropriate behaviors – even when we have no idea of what constitutes “appropriate.”
  4. Social learning never stops.
