Dr. Temple Grandin

Tuesday, May 21 - 7:00 PM

Dr. Grandin is a prominent author and speaks around the world as an expert on both autism and animal behavior. She is the distinguished professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and named one of the top 10 college professors in the country. Temple’s 2010 TED talk has benefited people around the world. She has a successful international career consulting on livestock handling, equipment design, and animal welfare. HBO made an Emmy Award-winning movie about her life. In 2016, she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

In “Great Minds Are Not All the Same,” Dr. Grandin discusses the importance of complementary skills of people who think in pictures, patterns, or words. This includes visual thinkers like Temple Grandin who think in photo-realistic pictures; visual, spatial, mathematical, and pattern thinkers who are good at math; and verbal thinkers who think in word. She will also be discussing how to help neurodivergent people get into good careers and her book, Visual Thinking.

Copies of Visual Thinking will be available for purchase from New Dominion Bookshop at the event.
