Dr. Temple Grandin did not talk until she was three and a half years old and was diagnosed with autism in 1950. She is now a noted animal expert (PhD. In Animal Science) and advocate for autistic populations. Dr. Grandin has authored numerous award winning books and was the subject of an Emmy and Golden Globe award winning movie. A unique chance to hear this inspiring speaker with a message of hope for anyone facing adversity! Come join us to hear this renowned speaker and advocate and celebrate 25 years of Autism Calgary.

Over the course of 25 years Autism Calgary has gone from a small group of energetic volunteer parents struggling to understand a rare disorder to a thriving organization helping almost 2000 individuals and families every year to find meaningful and purposeful lives in a community that values them. To celebrate the organization and all the individuals, families, volunteers and staff that have made the organization what it is today we would like to invite you to our ‘Evening with Dr. Temple Grandin’!

So please, come out for an evening of fun, to meet Dr. Temple Grandin and to support a great cause and a wonderful community!


Event MC is the wild and wonderful Comedian and Speaker, Lori Gibbs!

Our Events

I Have Autism

"I have Autism. I may not look unusual, but I experience the world much differently than you do. Autism makes it difficult for me to communicate with you, and sometimes causes me to have unusual behaviour. I am doing my very best. Please be patient with me and my caregivers, who are trying to give me a full and happy life."
