Welcome To Our Website

Behavior Consulting Peppy Patch provides individualized behavior therapy using ABA early intervention program.
Our programs utilize methods of Verbal Behavior to develop tailored programs whose focus is on functional language and functional social skills as replacement for target behavior.
Target behavior is the behavior we observe, intervene, and analyze.
Our program contains receptive language, requests, imitation, vocalization, academic skills, social sills, motor skills, and self help skills.
We also offer consulting, programming, training for therapists and parents as well as online consultation.
