Hi everyone… hws life??? After the movie “Taare Zameen Par” now we got a chance and need to watch and review the movie “Temple Grandin” . We should thank Ummi Dr Rosseni asked us to watch this movie… so obviously we know it gonna be a great movie… And yes it was….
Temple Grandin film been directed by Mick Jackson and released in 2010, stars by Claire Danes as Temple Grandin who acted as an autistic women. This film was based on on the real life of animal science and professor Colorado State University, also autism activist and and consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior.
And now lets move to the story of Temple Grandin..Here i have quoted the story from wikipedia… I guess its better for me to quote rather than me confused and rewrite the story… 🙂
The film starts off with Temple visiting her aunt for the summer and working on her ranch. She becomes interested in a cattle crush, a device that hugs the cows to “gentle them”. One day, while having a panic attack, Temple places herself in the device and it helps to calm her down.
When Temple first attended college, she was very nervous when she moved into her college dorm. Temple had another panic attack in her room, but her mother gave her space by closing the door. Immediately after, her mother had a flashback to when Temple was little and had relentless tantrums. Before that, Temple was diagnosed with classic autism, a severe case of autism in which she seemed aloof, lacked eye contact, had no language, and avoided human affection and touch.
At this time, science classified autism as a form of schizophrenia, blaming mothers as the cause for the disorder and claiming that they were cold and aloof toward their autistic child, naming them “refrigerator mothers“. The diagnostician suggested placing Temple in an institution. Temple’s mother refused to listen to the diagnostician and helped Temple adapt to the everyday world. Her mother hired a speech therapist, who worked one-on-one with Temple and enabled her to acquire language.
During Temple’s college years, she conceptualized the squeeze machine, which was designed for herself because she had a sensory integration dysfunction and disliked physical affection by people. The machine hugs both sides of her to calm her down, as she controls the pressure, and it makes her relaxed whenever she becomes tense.
Even though the machine worked, the school forced Temple to remove it, claiming that it was some kind of sexual device. Later after spring break ended, Temple and her aunt came back to school to persuade the school to let her use the device. Temple later proved through rigorous scientific study that the machine was only a calming device and, as a result, she was allowed to keep it. She uses this machine for self-medicating reasons ever since.
Later on, the movie flashes back to when Temple was just being admitted to Hampshire Country School. She was expelled from her previous high school because a child taunted her and she hit him with a book. There, she meets a supportive teacher, Dr. Carlock, who encourages her to go further into science as a career and to eventually attend college.
Temple does indeed graduate from college and becomes a worker at a ranch. She rebuilds a new dip, and alters a slaughterhouse for cows so that it is much more humane. The film concludes with an autism fair convention, which Temple and her mother attend.
Temple speaks out from the crowd and tells the audience how she overcame her difficulties and was able to achieve academically, as well as how her mother helped her deal with the everyday world. The people become so fascinated that they request Temple to speak in front of the auditorium. So that’s the end of the story and yeah it was great right.. I would suggest all of you to watch it to and enjoy it yar … 🙂
Moral Values :
1. Special Attentions to Special Need Students
We should always give special attention to all students with special needs such as dyslexia, autism and so on.. They are special in their own way. They might not be as the other kids but they have the talent in them too.. Teachers and parents need to understand them and also their situation and treat them up to their level. This students are quite sensitive and very emotional. It is quite difficult to handle this kind of students but if we do use the correct way then for sure we can manage them.
2. Protect and educate them
Parents should always concern about their children physical and mental. The problem that the kids faced usually been know or identified when they have grow about 4-5 years old. Even so, it is not too late we still can help them to go on with their life. Parents should always give attention and spend more time with your kids so that you could know what your kids are about.
So that’s the end of this reflection.. will be back with new reflection soon… im not gonna publish it now… Saved as draft… 🙂 Bubye n take care yar…
