    About the Movie: Temple Grandin
    The movie tells the story of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who becomes one of the top scientists in the humane livestock handling industry.

    Before enrolling in college, famed animal husbandry expert Temple Grandin visits a cattle ranch owned by her aunt Ann and demonstrates a brilliance for all things mechanical. Once classes begin, the autistic Grandin rises to meet the intellectual challenges—though the social ones are a bit more difficult. Grandin triumphs over prejudice to become an innovator in the field of animal care, and a lifelong advocate for humane slaughtering practices.

    Come learn:

    • How can you apply this information to your life?
    • How can we think of Temple's autism as a gift? As parents, how can you experience hopeful moments with your children?

    "Different Not Less" ~ Temple Grandin

    "Nature is cruel, but we don't have to be." ~ Temple Grandin
