Dave developed his expertise over 25 years of working directly with individuals with developmental disabilities who challenge typical support models. He has provided overnight support, worked day and evening shifts, and has been a live-in caregiver in addition to his supervisory and administrative roles. This combined with his clinical experience and formal education in clinical psychology, allows Dave to offer a uniquely qualified perspective to support teams as they address behavioral challenges, while also attending to caregiver stress.
Dave surrounds himself with like-minded individuals who strive, as a team, to provide the highest quality services. This team helped formulate Meaningful Living as a way to ensure quality behavioral supports are being provided in the face of shrinking budgets and increasing reliance on and sustained use of pharmaceuticals.
