Add to calendar

Join the STLCC Access Offices in a Teams discussion on the life and contributions of Temple Grandin. All are welcome to participate as we share questions and insights regarding the nature of autism and life experiences of autistic individuals.

Dr. Temple Grandin is well known to many for her trailblazing work as a spokesperson for people with autism and her lifelong work with animal behavior. Dr. Grandin has been with Colorado State University (CSU) for over 25 years.

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. Her understanding of the human mind has aided her in her work with animal behavior, and she is one of the most respected experts in both autism and animal behavior in the world.
