Temple Grandin, Ph.D.
Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is a world-renowned advocate for those on the autism spectrum, a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and an animal behavior consultant to the livestock industry. As a highly sought-after speaker who shares insights about her personal journey, she has championed the idea that “thinking differently” should not be perceived as having an inferior intellect. She is inventor of the “squeeze machine” (or “hug box”), a device to calm those on the spectrum and the “double rail (center track) conveyor restrainer system,” a humane, cattle handling system. She has been interviewed by numerous national media outlets and is the author of several acclaimed books on autism. Her numerous accolades include an international award from World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and her 2017 induction into the National Academy of Arts and Sciences. Temple Grandin, a 2010 Emmy-award winning motion picture, was based on her life.
