Ashley Dubin, PhD, BCBA is a licensed psychologist and Board Certified Behavior Analyst in the Clinical Core of the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute. She has expertise in assessment and intervention for individuals with a range of developmental, social-emotional, learning, and behavioral diagnoses and differences, including autism spectrum disorder. She has experience providing clinical, supervision, and training/consultative services as well as assisting with research and program evaluation initiatives focused on ways to best support neurodivergent individuals and their families across academic, medical, and community settings.
Dr. Dubin received her doctorate in School Psychology from the University of Georgia. She then completed a clinical internship through Devereux Advanced Behavioral Services followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in autism and developmental disability at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center/Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD). Throughout her graduate and post-graduate work, she received specialized training in neurodevelopmental disabilities/differences and evidence-based practices. She has advanced training in various research-supported assessment tools, including the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2), TELE-ASD-PEDS, and Screening Tool for Autism in Toddlers and Young Children (STAT), and interventions, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Project ImPACT, and Practical Functional Assessment (PFA)/Skills Based Treatment (SBT).
Dr. Dubin is dedicated to promoting the well-being of neurodivergent individuals and their families, who she believes should be valued and supported for their unique perspectives and strengths. To that end, her clinical work incorporates a strengths, acceptance, and inclusion-based perspective to empower children and families to navigate challenges and build skills that are aligned with their values. She is also a strong advocate for the need to learn from and partner with neurodivergent individuals in order to develop more compassionate and effective services, increase acceptance, and decrease stigma.
