Temple Grandin presents to sold out crowd

TemplekeynotewebA crowd of more than 700 gathered at the DoubleTree Park Place hotel in Minneapolis to hear Temple Grandin speak tonight. She shared and explained images of her brain scans. Dr. Grandin also offered her perspective on helping children with autism explore the world.

"Too many kids with autism are getting fixated on autism. Autism is an important part of who I am, but it's secondary to my career stuff," she said.

Dr. Grandin noted that kids need to get out and learn work skills.

"Figure out the informal economy," she said. "Have your child learn how to do things by working with people you know."
