Developmental Therapy

Developmental Therapists work one-on-one with the child in accordance with their Individualized Program Plan (IPP) to ensure that the child is working to improve towards age appropriate skills. All of our children's goals and objectives for their IPP plan are based in accordance with the Arkansas Benchmarks. The classroom environment is a fun, nurturing place with learning activities. The curriculum meets the needs of every child in the class.
