ABC Children’s Academy in partnership with Recovery Zone Pediatric Therapy opened the Child Health Management Service Program (CHMS) in Russellville and Dardanelle August 2013. ABC Children’s Academy and Developmental Center is a comprehensive and specialized healthcare facility for children with special needs and developmental delays. CHMS includes physician and nursing services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, nutrition consults, audiology, psychological services, and developmental day treatment. What makes ABC different is that we have a unique preschool set up that allows children who have two qualifying therapies to be mainstreamed with typical children who do not receive therapy services, because we all learn and grow from each other. Another benefit is that ABC Children’s Academy has brought onboard a Registered Nurse as part of the program who is able to assist in medical needs that arise in the preschool setting. To enroll in the CHMS program, a child must be Arkansas Medicaid/TEFRA eligible and be referred by his/her primary care physician. For more information, call 479-968-5048 or 479-229-2000.
