Common Experience: DR. TEMPLE GRANDIN (Mar 2)

Common Experience
LBJ GRAND BALLROOM
Wednesday, Mar 2, 2022 at 6:30 PM (CT)

DR. TEMPLE GRANDIN was nonverbal until nearly four years of age. Through the love and support of her family and teachers, she was able to attend school despite being teased and bullied. Inspired by her science teacher, she embarked on a career in science studying animal husbandry, for which she has received much notoriety. At the age of 18, she invented the “squeeze box” as a way of coping with extreme anxiety. Dr. Grandin’s books about her interior life as an autistic person have increased the world's understanding of the condition with personal immediacy — and with import, as rates of autism diagnoses rise. She is now one the most visible and leading advocates for individuals with autism.

Speech will be followed by a book sale and signing. Event is open to the public, but advanced tickets are required.
