Summary
When Temple Grandin was born, her parents knew that she was different. Years later she was diagnosed with autism. While Temple's doctor and father both recommended an institution, her mother believed in her. Temple went to school instead. Today, Dr. Temple Grandin is a scientist and professor of animal science at Colorado State University. Her world-changing career revolutionized the livestock industry. As an advocate for autism, Temple uses her experience as an example of the unique contributions that autistic people can make.
