Dr. Temple Grandin, a professor of animal sciences at Colorado State University and a recognized speaker on autism and animals, will present a fascinating talk about how people and animals think. Visual thinkers, mathematical thinkers, and word thinkers abound in the human population, while animals, lacking verbal language, think in sensory ways. Everyone processes information differently—the world needs all kinds of minds. This talk, The Cheryl Beth Silverman Memorial Lecture, is co-sponsored by the Goodwin College of Professional Studies at Drexel University.
