Behind the Breakthroughs

Sep 24, 2019

In this episode Dr. Annette Nunez and Maylene Johnson chat with Heather Grimaldi, MS, BCBA.  Her passion for autism comes through in this podcast as shares her career journey in hopes of inspiring other women and mothers.  From starting Proof Positive ABA Company, to selling it to Autism Learning Partners, to being a TACA ambassador, to co-founding Simple Spectrum Supplement, Heather is a force to be reckoned with.  Heather, along with Dr. Kristin Shay and Jacqueline Laurita created a supplement in which they wanted children to have the best possible nutrition.  She is currently working hard with insurance companies to fund Simple Spectrum Supplement because Heather explains how nutrition along with ABA and speech therapy is extremely beneficial to children with autism.  Her ultimate goal is for families to have access to higher end nutraceuticals that are affordable.
