Dave earned his undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis and his masters degree from St. Cloud State University. As a therapist, supervisor, consultant, and clinical director, David has helped toddlers to geriatric patients with diverse psychiatric conditions throughout the US. Of his most valued experiences he includes teaching several non-verbal teens speak in full sentences. Outside of his clinical work, Dave developed free graphing software for time-series data that has been adopted by university programs. As a researcher, David studied the neuropsychology of fast and slow decision-making in humans and animals. His work has been published in a half dozen peer-reviewed journals and has won fifteen grants and monetary awards.
David is proud to join Germany’s Knospe-ABA as “Head of Learning Center Development and International Growth.” He brings to the role experience with founding companies, sitting on the boards of nonprofits, lobbying on Capitol Hill, and driving exponential growth with other European ABA providers. Dave is an instrumental part of our company’s plans for growth and the addition of clinic-based settings to the Knospe-ABA options for family services.
