Durand is proud to be the first organization serving individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities in Southern New Jersey to welcome Temple Grandin, Ph.D., and her mother, Eustacia Cutler, to our area to speak about growing up successfully with autism and its impact on families, as well as offer hope for the future for children with autism and their families.
Dr. Grandin is a world-famous adult with autism, bestselling author, speaker, and designer of humane livestock treatment facilities and equipment. She was portrayed by actress Claire Danes in the Emmy award-winning HBO movie “Temple Grandin.”
Both Dr. Grandin and her mother, Eustacia Cutler-an autism advocate, speaker, writer, Harvard graduate, and writer of school lessons for major TV networks-will share their experiences with parents, educators, animal lovers, and the general public on Wednesday evening, April 22, 2015.
On this occasion, Durand will also present Dr. Grandin and Ms. Cutler with the first-time Dr. Durand Schulmann Award for Excellence in the field of autism. Dr. Durand Schulman was an autism advocate pioneer and founder of Durand who passed away in 2013.
