UNDERSTANDING AUTISM

A​utism is a puzzling condition in which social and communication skills are affected.  An extraordinary voice has emerged to shed light on what it's like to live with autism, and how to best help individuals with this perplexing and serious disorder.  Temple Grandin, a doctor of animal science, is a best selling author who also happens to be a individual with high-functioning autism.  She describes living with autism as akin to being an "anthropologist on Mars".  Today Grandin is a professor at Colorado State University, where she teaches courses on livestock behavior.  She is noted for her groundbreaking work in the field of animal welfare, as well as for autism advocacy.  Much in demand as a speaker, Temple Grandin will appear at the Future Horizons' and Sensory World's Autism/Asperger's Conference in Galveston Texas on December 17th, 2010.
