Leigh-Ann Leinhauser Brown joined the Education Department in August 2013. Before Castleton she worked as a T.A. and R.A. at Rutgers University and in a New Jersey Elementary school classroom for children who have autism and other exceptional abilities.
Leigh-Ann’s research interests include: family involvement in Special Education, social capital and access to special education resources, single subject case design for students with complex support needs, and the daily lives of families who have children who are chronically ill.
