As a child and into his teen years, Ash had a very difficult time understanding people and getting along with them—especially boys. This lead him, as a freshman in high school, to consider if he was in fact trans. Fast-tracked by his therapist, but held back by his father, a closer, more careful inspection of how he makes sense in the world lead to a diagnosis of autism. Once that connection was made, things became a lot easier for him to manage.
