Harrisburg University and Computer Aid Inc. presented Dr. Temple Grandin at The Forum Auditorium in downtown Harrisburg the evening of April 18.

Dr. Grandin, who was inarticulate until the age of 4, presented “Autism and the Scientific World” to a sold-out Forum auditorium.

Dr. Grandin, a professor at Colorado State University, is one of the first individuals on the autism spectrum to share her experience with autism. In 2010, she was named to the Time 100 list of most influential people in the world.

The University thanks Dr. Grandin for visiting Harrisburg University students and staff prior to the evening presentation.
