Maisha Syeda
Child Psychology Practitioner – AutisMag

My name is Maisha M. Syeda, a senior Ph.D. student (Ph.D. candidate) in the School and Applied Child Psychology program at the University of Calgary. I have completed my Master’s (MSc.) in the same discipline and have also completed my undergraduation in psychology and human biology from the University of Toronto. I have also been a recipient of several provincial and national research scholarships, including the prestigious SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) Doctoral Fellowship.

I am currently pursuing a year-long doctoral, clinical residency in Washington, District of Columbia providing mental health services within the public-school system, specifically for the vulnerable child, youth, and family demographics.

I am glad to be associated with DW Autism as Child Psychology Practitioner.


Ashish Bhattacharya
Senior Correspondent – AutisMag

I am Ash and I celebrate Neurodiversity! Growing up with an elder brother with severe Autism was tough – but it has also taught me essential life lessons.

I don’t believe that people with Autism are necessarily or have any disorder (except in extreme cases). They are just different! And that is something to be proud of!
I am passionate about helping other families who may have Autism conditions in their family. So please reach out and drop me a note. I will be glad to help 🙂
