Get Connected with ASET

Join us in 2020 as we return to the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort on April 30th and May 1st!

Our 2020 keynote will be Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is the most accomplished and well-known adult with autism in the world. Now her fascinating life, with all its challenges and successes, has been brought to the screen with the HBO full-length film Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes. 

Dr. Grandin is a speaker who inspires and motivates others through her story. She didn't talk until she was three-and-a-half years old, communicating her frustration instead by screaming, peeping, and humming. In 1950, she was diagnosed with autism and her parents were told she should be institutionalized. She recounts “groping her way from the far side of darkness” in her book Emergence: Labeled Autistic, a book that stunned the world because until its publication, most professionals and parents assumed that an autism diagnosis was virtually a death sentence to achievement or productivity in life.

Dr. Grandin has been featured on major television programs, including the BBC special The Woman Who Thinks Like a Cow, ABC’s Primetime Live, The Today Show, Larry King Live, 48 Hours, and 20/20 and has been written about in many national publications, including Time (she was included in the magazine’s annual “2010 Time 100” List of the world’s most influential people), People, Forbes, US News and World Report, and The New York Times. Among numerous other recognitions by the media, Bravo did a half-hour show on her life and she was featured in the best-selling book Anthropologist from Mars. 

Even though she was considered “weird” in her young school years, she eventually found a mentor who recognized her interests and abilities. Dr. Grandin later developed her talents into a successful career as a livestock-handling equipment designer, one of very few in the world. Dr. Temple Grandin currently works as a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and speaks around the world on both autism as well as cattle handling.
