David P. Traver, M.D., FAAP, studied at Stanford University in child Psychiatry and Boston University School of Medicine. One of the pioneers, in the Bay Area, helping families and children with special needs by not only practicing medicine, but also researching in the field. His unique and diverse background enables him to provide a level of care that is seldom seen in standard practice. We dive deep into his inspiration for becoming a doctor and getting involved with the special needs community. What the future of the special needs community looks like and how we can be a part of the change.
