Product description

About the Author

Dr Sandra Beale-Ellis has been teaching martial arts for over twenty years (and dance for thirty), and has knowingly been educating young people on the autism spectrum for fourteen of those. At that point, meeting one young student changed her pathway forever. Sandra has a Doctorate in Education (autism) with a special research interest in sensory and pedagogy issues, using an auto-ethnographic methodological approach. Whilst studying with staff from the Autism Centre at Sheffield Hallam University, she was clinically diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (a form of autism). Sandra speaks at conferences, and other events, and delivered an academic paper Autism: Celebrating Neurodiversity at the Theorizing Normalcy and the Mundane 3rd International Conference in Chester. She has been speaking on the Sheffield Hallam/National Autistic Society (NAS) Post Graduate Certificate in Autism and Asperger's Syndrome for five years, having achieved the qualification herself in 2007, and has been an associate lecturer in autoethnography and reflective practice on the Doctorate in Education (EdD) programme at Sheffield Hallam. She also has a strong work background in business administration and education, within private and public organisations as well as trustee and directorship experience. Sandra has her own unique method of delivering her very personal perspective including many examples and anecdotes both as a writer and a speaker. Using her experiences of beating childhood cancer as well as her understanding as an autistic individual has enabled her to inspire others who face similar or other adverse circumstances.
