Founder, CEO

Before his own life was changed when his daughter was diagnosed with autism, Polvado was a young entrepreneur who was already a founder and vice president at the age of 25. The communication, leadership, and management skills he honed in the business world were then funneled into the founding of a non-profit whose mission is to build the special care industry – an organized collective of providers, educators, lawyers, policy makers, advocates, and all others involved in the care of children with special healthcare needs.

His dramatic, sometimes emotional, and always informative presentations at venues like TedX, state legislatures, and community groups around the country have made him one of the most sought-after speakers in pediatric health care.
