Grandin to share autism insights

Thursday, 3rd August, 2017 9:06am

A world-renowned scientist, who designed half of the cattle facilities in America, is coming to Cork.

Dr Temple Grandin will share her insights on autism on Friday 18 August between 2.30-5pm in CIT’s Nexus Stadium.

Over 500 people are expected to attend the talk, entitled ‘The World Needs All Kinds of Minds.’

Dr Grandin, who herself has autism and has authored many books on the subject, is one of the first individuals on the autism spectrum to publicly share insights from her personal experience. An animal science specialist and professor at Colorado State University, she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2016.

Dr Grandin was named a Hero in the 2010 Time 100, an annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world and was the subject of the 2010 award-winning, semi-biographical film starring Claire Danes.

She will describe the challenges she has faced and offer ideas about how others dealing with autism can overcome their obstacles and improve the quality of their lives.

The event is hosted by IMPACT’s Special Needs Assistants’ (Munster) branch. Tickets are €30 for Impact members and €40 for non-members. To book tickets, visit
