About Us

We specialize in working with families and children with special needs, and generally helping families heal conflicts and focus on their future.

Vicki Christensen is passionate about advocating for families of special needs children
through the IEP process always with a child-centered approach. Equally important
is educating parents/guardians on the rights of a person with a disability and on
communication strategies to allow for a positive and open relationship with the
IEP team, school & district. Vicki’s background is a unique combination of 7 years of
special education advocacy both as a parent and a professional, over 10 years as a
professional in the healthcare field, both allowing her to utilize her degree and
experience in Communication Studies. Vicki is a mother to a 7 year old son with
global developmental delays and is experienced in early intervention, the IFSP and
IEP process as well as working with the Regional Center. Vicki is widely
networked with both parents of special needs children and professionals in the San
Diego area and looks forward to continuing to provide advocacy services to many
more families.
