Several ASRC members, including some of their children, went to San Antonio to see Temple Grandin speak. She, along with two other well known speakers on autism (Dr. Jim Balle, and Jennifer McIlwee Myers) provided valuable information, first hand accounts and even humor. They signed our books and took photos with us. (See photo to the left)
