Meet The Team
Director of Programs
Sandi Anderson has 2 adult sons on the autism spectrum. Advocating tirelessly for 30 years to help them reach their potential, she has amassed an arsenal of teaching skills. Using a myriad of teaching strategies is a lifestyle for her and has become the foundation of creative endeavors to meet her sons’ needs as well as those around them.
Ms. Anderson created “Arts In Motion,” an adult day program sourced and provided through the San Diego Regional Center to teach life, social, academic and business skills to her son, Joel. Together they have established a micro enterprise supporting Joel’s painting, animation and speaking schedule: Joel’s Vision Arts. As an international public speaker, Ms. Anderson is best known as an encourager of other parents with special needs children. For the past 15 years, she has been a key volunteer with Autism Tree Project Foundation, coordinating their Football Mentor Program with University of San Diego by working directly with the university, players and families.
It is her greatest joy to share hope to other families all over the world.
