ABC Children’s Academy in partnership with Recovery Zone Pediatric Therapy offering the Early Intervention Day Treatment (EIDT) in Russellville, Dardanelle, Dover and Clarksville. ABC Children’s Academy and Developmental Center is a comprehensive and specialized healthcare facility for children with special needs and developmental delays. EIDT includes 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 one qualifying therapy 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 EIDT program, a child must be Arkansas Medicaid/TEFRA eligible and be referred by his/her primary care physician.
