AutismBC in partnership with 4-H British Columbia, will host autism advocate and best-selling author Temple Grandin for her acclaimed talk: Developing Individuals who have Different Minds. Temple Grandin was one of the first people to publicly share her insights into autism from an insider’s perspective and is a prominent author and speaker on autism, who has published multiple books on the subject.
Grandin also has a successful career consulting on both livestock handling equipment design and animal welfare. She is a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and has authored several books on animal behavior and working with animals. Temple’s success story was told in the 2010 film “Temple Grandin,” an award-winning HBO production starring Claire Danes.
AutismBC is British Columbia’s entry point and knowledge resource for all things autism. For over 40 years we have been empowering those on the spectrum and their advocates, with the information and pathways to education to help those affected achieve their fullest potential. Our commitment starts with early diagnosis and intervention, and extends the entire lifespan of British Columbians on the autism spectrum. For more information please visit www.autismbc.ca
