Waiting with Purpose
High demand for ABA services and diagnosis is causing families to face long wait times for therapy and services with little or no support. This has created long waiting lists and are a barrier to medical diagnosis and services for children. Some children wait years before receiving services. During this period children miss numerous opportunities to address challenging behaviors and learn new skills. We understand it can be frustrating and worrisome to wait for services for your child. That's what our programs are all about!
Sprout is an alternative option for families to the long waiting lists. Sprout provides a comprehensive support services for families. Sprout is an option to the long waiting lists for ABA therapy for your child.
We will formulate a plan that will help you prioritize goals for your child. We work with the family unit along with your child to increase independence, decrease challenging behaviors, and learn new skills. Our main focus is overall improvement and quality of life for your child and your family. We guide you and your child to help them grow, develop and getting closer to reaching their best potential.
Sprout could be the support you need. If you don't qualify for services due to waiting list for a diagnosis or if you have received a diagnosis and are on a provider's waiting list for therapy, we provide custom services to meet specific needs of each child.

Let me Introduce Myself
Viviana DeFelipe, Master in Psychology with emphasis in Applied Behavior analysis (MS, ABA)
I was born in Lima, Peru and educated in a British/English High School. Being able to speak Spanish and English allows me the opportunity to facilitate communication between parents, children, and those providing other professional services to native Spanish speakers.
I studied Psychology in Lima Peru for four years before I arrived in the United States to complete my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from The University of South Carolina in 2010. I received a Master's degree in psychology with specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis from Kaplan University a few years later.
More important than my education is my many years of hands on experience. I have worked with thousands of children over the years providing ABA therapy, being an ABA coordinator, Early Interventionist (EI) and teacher for the past 15 years. I have worked with many different professionals and families to create and develop individualized learning programs for children with disabilities that address each child's specific needs. I have successfully coached hundreds of families on how to deal with the difficulties of raising children with disabilities. We've celebrated and continue to celebrate with families as we reach goal after goal. Watching children and families increase their quality of life and helping them reach their potential is amazing to experience together. After all, to have quality of life and be as independent as possible is what it's all about!
Is Sprout for me?
This is a good question. This will not be an easy process. It will require hard work, consistency, and a commitment by you as a loving parent. Challenging behaviors sometimes get worse before they get better. Changes come gradual and take time. With your love, patience, and our proven effective guidance, your family's quality of life - and your child's behaviors - will change for the better.
