Research

I have recently completed a PhD at Cardiff Metropolitan School of Art & Design; an investigation into the way in which film-making can help to develop the social communication skills of autistic children. 

The project started as a investigation of my own practice, delivering animation workshops to autistic children. I then moved on to observe the work of another practitioner, delivering similar activities in a school. The research establishes the activity of film-making as one that is rich in social opportunities for autistic children, providing a robust basis for further work looking at the ways in which it can be used to develop their social skills.
