Preferred pronouns: She/ Her
Akanksha Nayar Chhettri is a Behaviour Analyst (BCBA/IBA). She has previously worked at a centre in India from 2014 until 2018 and moved to Ghana in May of 2018 where she served as the Senior Clinical Supervisor at Autism Compassion Africa until 2021. When she first moved to Ghana she was one of two BCBAs in all of West Africa (which is roughly the size of the United States). Her responsibilities included helping run the centre in Cape Coast and to also do consultation work for clients in Nigeria. She is now a board member of Autism Compassion Africa.
Over her time in the field, she has developed a keen interest in international dissemination, staff training, autism advocacy, social justice and decolonization of systems. She believes that ABA as a discipline requires a multicultural ethos to help shape what is being built; the more perspectives that contribute to the growth, the more dynamic and multifaceted the field can be.
Akanksha enjoys stimulating conversations and meeting people that help broaden her perspective of the world. She is also a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community.
