Stanley I. Greenspan, M.D. passed away yesterday and what a great loss this is. A true visionary and advocate for our children, he will be missed for the man he was and the countless lives he changed.
I had the fortunate opportunity to consult with Dr. Greenspan while working with a number of his patients in the 90′s. He was a great supporter of sound and music based methods to help children with developmental problems.
RIP Dr. Greenspan, I am sorry to see you go, but what what a legacy you have left.
