Autism: A Mother and BCBA’s Story

EPISODE 25:  Autism - A Mother and BCBA’s Story



As you know, we’re always searching for wonderful stories and great information to share. On today’s episode, we’re speaking with BCBA and Founder of Proof Positive ABA Therapies, Heather Grimaldi. As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and Clinical Director, Heather’s focus has always been on supporting the families and team members tasked with implementing behavior-analytic interventions. She built Proof Positive ABA Therapies to teach self-help and social skills with a family-focused approach and an emphasis on parent education. In 2016, Autism Learning Partners created one of the largest autism therapy platforms by acquiring Proof Positive (Heather has a funny story about this), and today she continues her work with families as a Clinical Liaison with Autism Learning Partners in Orange County, California. Please join me in a warm welcome.



Our goal is to always share a diverse range of voices within the autism community; people both on and off the spectrum, from all walks of life, with all different backgrounds. We feel it’s important because we’re all in it together! We can all learn from each other, and we can all support each other. On good days and bad days. Thanks for joining me today and for being a part of My Autism Tribe. I’ll see you next week!




The supplement is designed to provide the nutritional needs of the developing nervous system, with extra support for individuals with autism, by addressing potential dietary deficits. Working with Defeat Autism Now and Medical Association of Pediatric Special Needs affiliated doctors in her role as a BCBA, company founder Heather Grimaldi saw benefits of high-end supplement systems firsthand. Simple Spectrum is similar to a nutraceutical a doctor might prescribe, but at a much more affordable price, without the long drives and even longer waits. There are states and countries that don’t even have access to these types of doctors.


The Simple Spectrum mission was to create the kind of nutraceutical supplement based on the latest scientific research, and free from the extraneous additives packed into so many similar products on the market. As a parent of one child with sensory processing disorders and another with ketotic hypoglycemia, responsible for implementing food programs herself, Heather knows how hard it can be to get kids to eat the right foods and that includes her own kids. Simple Spectrum Supplement is an unflavored dissolvable powder without gluten, casein, added sugar, soy, binding agents, artificial colors, preservatives, GMOs and dairy. The highest quality vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients – Simple Spectrum Supplement really is quite simple.
