Temple Grandin, a well-known Autism activist, will give the keynote speech at an event co-hosted by University of North Texas and Comprehensive Educational Services at 9 a.m. at Temple Emanu-El, 8500 Hillcrest Ave. in Dallas.

Grandin will share her experiences with a childhood diagnosis of autism, and her personal journey. Grandin couldn't speak until she was four years old, but with the support of her family and her own determination, she became a college professor with a doctorate in animal science. 

"+Autism: A Lecture and Discussion with Temple Grandin" is open to anyone...
