An Evening with Temple Grandin:
Connecting Animal Behavior and Autism
*Special guest appearance by Eustacia Cutler, Temple's mother
Come spend an evening with Dr. Temple Grandin, professor of animal science at Colorado State University, consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior, and autism spokesperson. She is one of the first individuals on the autism spectrum to publicly share insights from her personal experience of autism and its relation to animals.
Dr. Grandin will discuss autism and its advantage in working with animals. Whether you are a member of the autism community or the livestock arena, you will find this talk informative and unforgettable.
“Autism helped me understand animals because I think in pictures. Since animals do not have language, their memories have to be sensory-based instead of word-based.” ~Dr. Temple Grandin
Eustacia Cutler, the mother of Temple Grandin, will offer her view of autism through personal experience. Her daughter is now one of the most accomplished spokespersons on autism and animal behavior worldwide. Ms. Cutler will discuss observations from her award-winning documentaries on challenged and emotionally disquieted children. She has an impressive and varied background, including having written A Thorn in My Pocket: Temple Grandin’s Mother Tells the Family Story.
