Glendale, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2016
Autism Learning Partners (“ALP”), a national provider of therapy to children with autism spectrum disorders, headquartered in Glendale, CA, today announced its acquisition of Proof Positive ABA Therapies (“Proof Positive”), a rapidly growing provider throughout the United States. Autism Learning Partners (formerly known as Pacific Child & Family Associates) began offering services to children with autism and other developmental disabilities in 1988.
Proof Positive, with offices in Costa Mesa and Commerce, CA, will continue to operate with its current management team as a wholly owned subsidiary of Autism Learning Partners.
The combination of these businesses, which will operate under ALP’s Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Winter, creates one of the largest autism therapy providers in the U.S., and one of the few scaled providers in the country serving children with autism. “I believe Autism Learning Partners and Proof Positive working together will be an exceptional partnership,” Jeffrey Winter said. “Both organizations are committed to common core values around excellence, teamwork and compassion for the many families and children we provide exceptional care to. In fact, the combined organization will be providing care for over 2,500 clients nationwide.”
Heather Grimaldi, MS BCBA, Clinical Director and Founder of Proof Positive commented, “It was my dream to start a company that put families first and to try to help as many people as possible. I’m so proud that we were able to fulfill this and now expand on it. With joining ALP’s phenomenal team, we are ecstatic to be able to grow even larger and look forward to helping more families.”
Equity financing for the Proof Positive acquisition was provided by Jefferson River Capital LLC (“JRC”), now the single largest shareholder of Autism Learning Partners. Other shareholders include funds managed by Scopia Capital Management LP as well as funds managed by Great Point Partners. JRC is a single family office based in New York and includes a dedicated direct private equity investment platform.
