ADDitude Webinar: An Open Conversation with Temple Grandin

August 1 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

This free webinar is presented by ADDitude Magazine. For more information about ADDitude, please visit their website: https://www.additudemag.com/This webinar will be recorded. Even if you can’t attend live, feel free to register, and ADDitude will send you the replay link via email.

Temple Grandin, Ph.D., a prominent author, scientist, and esteemed professor at Colorado State University, will talk about her journey growing up with autism in an era when children were routinely institutionalized following a diagnosis — and what helped her to follow her passions to world renown. It wasn’t until 2014 that the American Psychiatric Association revised the diagnostic criteria for autism and broadened the spectrum, which now ranges from boundary-pushing scientists and artists to individuals who need profound help with daily tasks. Grandin’s story is one of perseverance and success and has been an inspiration to many.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • How autism affected Temple at a young age (hypersensitivity to noise and other sensory stimuli) through high school, college, and beyond — and the importance of early intervention
  • How understanding of and perceptions about autism have changed through the years, and how she helped to break the stigma
  • What to look for when a diagnosis is suspected


About the Presenter: Temple Grandin, Ph.D., a professor of animal science at Colorado State University, has been an outspoken advocate for people with autism and neurodiversity. In 2010, Grandin was named in the “Heroes” category of Time 100, an annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. She also was the subject of the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning biographical film that year, named Temple Grandin.
