About Claudia Wenger, MS, BCBA

I have dedicated my career to helping people with special needs live a meaningful life.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Southern California. I went on to get my Master’s in Special Education. I continue to stay up to date with the ever-changing processes through regular and special education teaching credentials. I am also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).

I have worked in the special needs community for 33 years! I started as a special education teacher for 6-8th grade classrooms. I was also an evaluator for two to three-year-old special needs students.

I moved to the private school sector where I provided inclusion services for K-12 students. I assisted students with finding the Least Restrictive Environment for them. It was at this time where I learned the value of inclusion in the community for people with special needs.

I managed a program for high school students with moderate to severe disabilities. I developed and managed an independent living co-op for young adults that supported community integration.

Furthering my career, I left the school system and developed and managed the Regional Center and Department of Rehabilitation programs that support adults with special needs. These programs promoted services for adults with special needs to live and work in their communities with a focus on Self-Determination and Person-Centered Planning.

Through my years of experience, I have learned that every family has a different path and different needs. This turns into different times where every family needs to access different services and receive varied support.

I have found that it is usually during the secondary transition that families struggle the most. Families need a helping hand to reduce isolation and frustrations.

I am here to help every family who has a child with a disability. I have been trained, have the experience needed, and have the determination to help ensure any child with a disability has a meaningful and productive life. I am here to help every individual be correctly integrated into their community.

Thank you for stopping by!

I believe that being well prepared and having a plan can make the difference between a smooth transition and one fraught with difficulties.

I am committed to supporting families and making a difference in the lives of individuals with special needs.
