Temple Grandin Featured in Two Virtual University Events, Drawing Thousands

Temple Grandin Featured in Two Virtual University Events, Drawing Thousands

Thousands heard from Dr. Temple Grandin, author of the book The Autistic Brain, at a Virtual Town Hall Meeting on May 19 and a few months later at the Virtual 19th Annual U.S. disABILITY Conference.

Debra Pellegrino, Ed.D., dean of the Panuska College of Professional Studies (PCPS) said that both events shed light on autism in the region and beyond.

“Although Dr. Grandin was discussing the autistic brain, I immediately thought of the Virtual Town Hall meetings at the University and how these virtual meetings have allowed the Autism Collaborative Centers of Excellence (ACCE) initiative to continue to successfully serve those in 13 counties in Northeastern and North Central Pennsylvania,” she said.

The ACCE Executive Hub is housed in PCPS, and ACCE is part of a multi-year, multimillion initiative led by the AllOne Foundation Board of Directors to greatly improve service delivery for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder who live in the aforementioned 13 counties.

Additionally, PCPS has partnered with the University’s Slattery Center for the Humanities to produce content such as a speaker series, art shows and other events to inspire individuals to share stories of autism.
