Among extensive direct support experience, William has managed a day program, coordinated residential services, and has developed Behavioral Plans for over 200 developmentally/intellectually disabled adults, with a goal of reducing or eliminating their levels of psychotropic medication. William refined his expertise at a community centered board as a member and leader of the Quality Enhancement Team. As such, he has a strong understanding of regulatory statues and standards for people in services.
