Join Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) for the annual Author Series Learning Community Event featuring Dr. Temple Grandin, author of “Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism.” This learning community celebrates and supports the unique talents of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Dr. Grandin will visit FSCJ on March 14, 2017, and is scheduled to speak at both FSCJ Kent and South Campuses.
Dr. Grandin, considered the most accomplished and well-known adult with autism in the world, has been featured on National Public Radio as well as major television programs such as ABC’s Primetime Live and 20/20. Her fascinating story has also been the subject of a 2010 film. In “Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism,” Dr. Grandin explores a variety of topics related to autism, including animal behavior, religion and visual thought, among others.
