Defying expectations that autism would prevent her from living a productive life, Dr. Grandin has gone on to a successful career as a livestock-handling equipment designer, educator and author. Her amazing and inspiring story, which has been featured in major media stories and an HBO movie, has revolutionized perceptions of autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
Dr. Grandin took a break between visits to local manufacturing and processing plants, classroom visits and her lecture to sit down and talk with Ashlie Ford.
