Nick Hodge

Professor of Inclusive Practice
Sheffield Hallam University

I am Professor of Inclusive Practice at The Autism Centre, Sheffield Institute of Education, Sheffield Hallam University. Prior to joining the University in 1998, my professional background was in supporting disabled children and their families in schools for over 15 years. My research interests focus on all issues that impact on the education and well-being of disabled children and young people and their families. Much of my work has involved challenging deficit led models of disability that mark children and young people as disordered and other. I seek to identify and challenge the structural barriers that impede the aspirations of disabled children and young people and their families.
