Photos: Temple Grandin visits CU

Autism activist, animal welfare advocate and professor of animal studies at Colorado State University, Temple Grandin, spoke to a packed Glenn Miller Ballroom Thursday evening about the different types of human minds and learning abilities that exist.

She shared her personal experiences and stories with a crowd of about 500 people, Jenna Greenwood, chair of Cultural Events Board, said.

Grandin, the subject of a 2010 HBO biopic, recently released “Different … Not Less,” her new book about ways to improve the lives of those with autism, Asperger’s, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
