The Circuit: Vista Del Mar Child, ADL, Friendship Walk


During a Nov. 18 autism conference hosted by Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services’ Julia Ann Singer Center, actress Julia Ormond presented Eustacia Cutler, whom she portrayed in “Temple Grandin,” with the Baron Inspiration Award as well as her 2010 Emmy Award, which Ormond won for her supporting role in the HBO feature. Cutler is the real-life mother of Temple Grandin, who was diagnosed with autism as a child, and who has since gone on to become one of the world’s leading animal scientists and autism advocates.
