Open Discussion with Temple Grandin-Autism Expert, Author, and Scientist

August 1 @ 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT

12:00 CT / 11:00 MT

Temple Grandin, Ph.D., a prominent author, scientist, and esteemed professor at Colorado State University, will talk about her journey growing up with autism in an era when children were routinely institutionalized following a diagnosis — and what helped her to follow her passions to world renown. Grandin says that parents can help their children with autism by maintaining high expectations and teaching them life and social skills.


In this special webinar, you will learn about:

  • How autism affected Temple at a young age (hypersensitivity to noise and other sensory stimuli) through high school, college, and beyond — and the importance of early intervention
  • How understanding of and perceptions about autism have changed through the years, and how she helped to break the stigma
  • What led her to become an animal behaviorist and creator of the “hug box,” a device to improve the stress of livestock during slaughter
  • What to look for when an autism diagnosis is suspected
