Wolf Wolfensberger (born in Mannheim, Germany in 1934) is an American academic who influenced disability policy and practice in the United States and elsewhere through his development of Social Role Valorisation (SRV). SRV extended the work of Bengt Nirje in Europe on Normalisation. He later extended his approach in a radical anti-deathmaking direction.
Wolfensberger emigrated to the USA in 1950 at 16 years of age.
