Educating All Kinds of Minds
The Rich Center For Autism is commemorating its 25th anniversary by presenting Dr. Temple Grandin, a world-renowned autism spokesperson, scientist, and inventor, has served as an inspiration and role model to hundreds of thousands of families and persons with autism. In this unique presentation, Temple eloquently and candidly describes the challenges she has faced and offers glimpses into her own childhood, with ideas on how others dealing with autism can meet these obstacles and improve the quality of their lives.
Backed by her personal experience and evidence-based research, Temple shares her valuable insights on all types of thinkers (i.e. pattern, visual, and audio thinkers), why they are important, what jobs they are best suited for and ways in which young people can continue to think about and understand what it means to be innovative.
• Create a learning environment to accommodate those who think differently.

Our goal and mission is to help bring us together to create awareness and education for individuals, families, faculties and friends with special needs. This will be a FREE 60-minute live webinar with a Q&A session.
ABOUT THE RICH CENTER FOR AUTISM
The Rich Center for Autism will serve as a lasting tribute to the memory of Paula and Anthony Rich and their unborn child, whose lives tragically ended in a plane crash outside of Pittsburgh on September 8, 1994. It is the founders’ dream that from this tragedy will spring hope for those affected by autism.
