Temple Grandin/Public Radio/occupational therapists

Mom wrote me on August 30th about a show that took place on August 29th:

Yesterday on NPR, The Writer's Almanac, Garrison Keillor (sp?)
mentioned that it was Temple Grandin's birthday and also that
some of her work is being used by occupational therapists these
days, especially for working with autistic children. You might
want to see if you can find it archived to listen for yourself.

One quote:

“The squeeze machine that she designed has since been used by occupational therapists in therapy with children who have autism, ADD, and Tourette's syndrome.”
