DEFIANCE, Ohio – The Hench Autism Studies Program at Defiance College will hold a parent meeting on Thursday, Nov. 11, at 7 p.m. in the Dix Room 106 of Schauffler Hall.
During the meeting, the life of Temple Grandin, Ph.D. will be discussed. Dr. Grandin is a professor of animal science at Colorado State University. She has been able to use her autism, that she says has her “think in pictures,” and turn it into a way to design processing facilities that treat animals humanely. Her life illustrates how people with autism can be different, but not less.
The Hench Autism Studies Resource Center in the Pilgrim Library will be open and available for attendees.
Parents and others interested in programs serving children with autism are encouraged to attend. If you have any questions about the meeting or have information to share, please contact Fred Coulter at (419) 783-2416 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
