What do cows and autism have in common? Temple Grandin!

We watched the HBO movie Temple Grandin last night on Netflix.  Loved it!  I was inspired on a variety of levels.  Temple struggled with autism before there was an informed medical community or public regarding autism.  She and her family overcame barriers and stigma, and she excelled and inspired.   You can learn more about Temple through her TED profile.

Temple became a doctor of animal science and taught at Colorado State University.  Her observations of cattle behavior led her to design humane slaughter facilities that are widely used today, though, unfortunately, not used 100%.

  1. I knew I’d seen her interviewed on TV so I went to her website ……. sure enough, she was on 60 Minutes months ago. Fascinating!
