Temple Grandin best-selling author and internationally acclaimed speaker on autism, is coming to Vancouver.  Temple was one of the first people to publicly share her insights into autism from an insider’s perspective. She is a prominent author and speaker on autism, and has published multiple books on the subject. Temple also has a successful career consulting on both livestock handling equipment design and animal welfare and is a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and has authored several books on animal behavior and working with animals. Grandin’s success story was told in the 2010 film “Temple Grandin,” an award-winning HBO production starring Claire Danes.
