Event Details

To understand animals, you have to get away from words. The animal world is a sensory based world. Their memories are detailed pictures, sounds, smell, and other sensory impressions.Gaining insight into the world of animals helps us understand our own lives. This talk from renowned expert Dr. Temple Grandin will help you understand animals but will also give you insights into solving problems.

Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is the most accomplished and well-known adult with autism in the world. Now her fascinating life, with all its challenges and successes, has been brought to the screen with the HBO full-length film Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes. Dr. Grandin currently works as a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and speaks around the world on both autism and cattle handling.
