Benjamin Maixner

Benjamin is a Spokane native living in Los Angeles. He is a board-certified behavior analyst providing behavioral and organizational consulting. He currently serves as the Director of Programs at Exceptional Minds, a vocational program training adults with autism to work in visual effects and animation. The program has afforded these artists the opportunity to work on projects such as Black PantherAvengers: End GameStar Wars, and Game of Thrones to name a few. He has nearly finished his PhD (ABD) in applied behavior analysis but has been working in the field of autism for 15 years. Benjamin has seen first-hand the struggles that individuals with autism and their families have faced exiting the educational system and transitioning into the workforce. He is committed to making a difference for this population by trying to create opportunities for meaningful participation in the workforce and society more broadly.
