Post - Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin, a woman with autism, overcame the limitations imposed on her by her condition to become a Ph.D. and expert in the field of animal husbandry.  Today, she is one of the top scientists in the humane livestock handling industry.

The program at the library tonight is called, “Special Needs & Building Resilience” and it is sponsored by the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation, the Barrington Area Library, Barrington Area Special Voices, and the PTO Presidents Council.

Along with the movie, you will hear a brief presentation about children with special needs and resilience given by members of Barrington Area Special Voices.

There is no fee to attend the program, which lasts from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Barrington High School Auditorium and registration is required.  CLICK HERE to sign up or call the library at (847) 382-1300.  You’ll find Barrington High School at 616 W. Main Street in Barrington.  And, for a preview, check out the trailer for the movie, starring Claire Danes as Temple Grandin.
