Texas Tech’s Burkhart Center welcomes a guest speaker next week.

The Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research is hosting Temple Grandin, an accomplished and well-known individual with autism, and her mother, Eustacia Cutler.

Grandin, an Animal Sciences professor at Colorado State University, is one of the most accomplished adults with autism.

“Dr. Grandin has been very instrumental in helping to educate society about the challenges and opportunities presented by people with autism spectrum disorder,” said Janice Magness, director of the Burkhart Transition Academy.

Grandin will talk about obstacles which she has faced, and offer ideas on how others dealing with autism can meet these challenges and improve the quality of their lives. She will also discuss her experiences with early intervention, sensory problems, and different thinking styles in autism.

The lecture will take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 30th in the Allen Theatre in the Texas Tech Student Union Building.
