We live in such a highly technological age. People in other parts of the world are just a few clicks away on the internet. Video and web conferencing make conferences available to those scattered across the country.
Dr. Temple Grandin will be doing a webinar on livestock tomorrow which illustrates how anyone, anywhere can tune in and watch this. Having worked with children who have autism, I would love to meet or at least hear her speak. Why? In the 2010 TIME 100, Dr. Grandin was listed as one of the 100 most influential people in 2010 in the Heroes category. Why? Because being autistic herself, Temple Grandin has given more insight into autism than anyone. She didn’t speak until age three or four (I read three and a half but the movie about her says four), yet now she is a highly sought after public speaker and is a professor at Colorado State University. What an amazing lady! If I didn’t have to teach tomorrow then I would definitely want to watch and listen to her on the webinar.
