Teaching animation with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and ADHD.
As an animation teacher with over 25 years experience, I have taught a huge amount of students with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and ADHD.I have come up with various stratergies in order to help students with these conditions. I have also noticed that I myself have many of the traits of a person with Asperger’s, Autism and ADHD. This has led to my being assessed for these conditions. I want to talk about the problems faced by animators with these conditions and how long it takes to be assessed with the current system in the UK. I also want to talk about the difficulty faced by my ex students gaining employment as well as my own experiences, living with this slightly unusual outlook on life. I will be showing examples of students work, as well as some of my own pieces and hope this lecture will be of help to teachers and students alike.

Transforming the Intangible into the Real
Through my some animation works, generally, the technology used in animation production tends to become the focus of attention, but for me, making animation is to enter a deeper spiritual world where I transcend the dualism of mind and matter, a place where I believe lies the answer to uniting the subconscious with reality. The order of topics in which these ideas will be contemplated are: spiritually assimilating with the motifs in my animated works, creating movement in animation and its fusion with the psyche, the role of the subconscious in production, and the ways to access the subconscious through techniques of animated expression.
