Grandin: Don't Give Up on Children with Autism

CHICO, Colo. — When a young child is diagnosed as autistic, parents must move into high gear, Temple Grandin said in Chico Wednesday.
"The worst thing you can do is nothing," she said.
Grandin, who is autistic herself, is famous as an animal-behavior expert and as an advocate for people with autism.
An author and professor of animal science at Colorado State University, Grandin spoke twice, to large audiences, in Chico State University's Bell Memorial Union Auditorium Wednesday morning. She also was to be the keynote speaker at the Butte County Farm Bureau's annual banquet Wednesday evening.
