Dr. Temple Grandin
Dr. Temple Grandin is well known to many for her trailblazing work as a spokesperson for people with autism. Her life’s work has been to understand her own autistic mind, and to share that knowledge with the world, aiding in the treatment of individuals with the condition. She is currently a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and her understanding of the human mind has aided her in her work with animal behavior. Dr. Grandin is one of the most respected experts in both autism and animal behavior in the world.
Dr. Grandin’s first book, Emergence: Labeled Autistic, was an unprecedented inside narrative of autism. She has been featured in TV shows and magazines around the world, and her life was the subject of an Emmy Award-winning HBO movie.
