- Spectrum Center Programs was founded in 1975 by Ernie Wing and Mary Lessa, two young teachers who had a vision for creating a school based upon the principals of behavior analysis and a belief that they could make a difference in the lives of children.
- Their first “school” was started in the humblest of locations, a “classroom” located in a garage in downtown Oakland.
- Spectrum Center Schools has been a leader in providing special education services to the San Francisco Bay Area since 1975.
- Our program was founded as an alternative for students whose disabilities prevented them from attending public school.
