Talk by Sandy Teal
We welcome the return of Sandy Teal of sj teal consultancy ltd to talk about Aspects of Asperger’s and the Law. She'll be looking at this from both the point of view of autistic victims of crime and autistic people who are accused of a crime.
Sandy is well known to many of the group and was a former DAAS Ltd Voluntary Director. Amongst her other work she is Lead Autism Specialist for Hampshire Probation Service. She also has an interest in sensory integration therapy and is a co-founder of MindSenseAbility based in the New Forest where she acts as Educational Specialist.
