Smita Awasthi, MA, BCBA
A behavior analyst with 30 years of international experience with special needs children and adults with autism. This project is her silent promise to a young boy with autism who lived at Jagriti Vihar, a residential special needs school in Lucknow, in the 1980s. He remained undiagnosed and she could never help him due to lack of training at the time. Her vision and dedication in providing high quality services, capacity building, pioneering a system-driven organization, and supporting families unconditionally remain her mainstay. Her strengths will stretch the boundaries of residential living for the special needs.
