Temple Grandin is a philosophical leader of both the animal welfare and autism advocacy movements. She knows the anxiety of feeling threatened by everything in her surroundings, and of being dismissed and feared, which motivates her work in humane livestock handling processes. She is an doctor of animal science and professor at Colorado State University, bestselling author, and consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior. As a person with high-functioning autism, Grandin also is noted for her work in autism advocacy and is the inventor of the squeeze machine designed to calm hypersensitive people. Grandin has been featured on major media programs, such as Lisa Davis's It's Your Health, ABC's Primetime Live, the Today Show, and Larry King Live, the NPR show, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and written up in Time magazine, People magazine, Discover magazine, Forbes and The New York Times. She also is the focus of a semi-biographical HBO film, titled Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes. The movie was released in 2010, nominated for 15 Emmys, and earned five awards, including Outstanding Made for Television Movie and Best Actress in a Drama.
