Research Summary

I am a Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for Teachers and Teaching Research. My research to date has explored the impact of inclusion on autistic children and the attitudes of non-autistic children toward their autistic peers. My published papers highlight factors influencing vulnerability towards, and protection against social rejection and bullying for autistic children. Current projects evaluate the effectiveness of contrasting school settings and interventions designed to increase understanding of autism. Proposed future research will explore psychological and social factors influencing teachers’ thoughts and beliefs about inclusion. My main focus is the influences on early career teachers’ conceptualisations of neurodiversity and obstacles to teacher agency in the enactment of inclusive practice.
