Dr. Tim Feeney
Tim is Chief Knowledge Officer at Belvedere Health Services – a community-based rehabilitation service in New York State. Over the past 30 years, he has worked in a variety of capacities including: special education teacher; staff psychologist; Assistant Professor of Special Education; and director of a statewide program for individuals with autism. He has been responsible for the procurement and coordination of over US$10 million in grant-funded programs serving individuals with “behaviours of concern” and has authored over 50 scholarly journal articles and book chapters. As Director of the New York Neurobehavioral Resource Project, Tim supported individuals with brain injury and significant “behaviours of concern” to live successfully in their home communities, at considerable cost savings to government (during 1996-1997 alone, the Project cost just over US$200,000 but resulted in savings of over US$2 million, based on conservative calculations by external New York State Health Department auditors).
