Free Video Series

Posted on Updated on

Sitting around with nothing to do? Follow the link below to about 5 hours of free video from an autism conference featuring among others, Temple Grandin as only she can be. Can’t vouch for the quality, or how long they will be available. It is a Thanksgiving promotion (USA), so may be time limited. Ignore the pricing on the right side and just click on each video.

Happy 2 weeks to exams!
