In addition to her work in transgender health, Ashleigh has a 20-year background in autism assessment, treatment, and research. She is a sessional instructor in the Educational Studies in School Psychology program at the University of Calgary and completed her PhD at the Autism Spectrum Research, Education, and Training (ASERT) laboratory there.
