Leading Developmental Disorders Treatment Center for Children & Teens in Arkansas

Development disorders can have a disruptive effect on children and teens, but we can help. Millcreek Behavioral Health is a leading residential facility in Arkansas for kids and adolescents struggling with development disorders and other issues with mental health, developmental disorders, and addiction.

Developmental disorders are a diverse group of conditions that lead to deficiencies in cognitive, physical, behavioral, language, and learning abilities in children and teens. Generally, these disorders appear during certain stages in a child’s development and often lead to impaired daily functioning. While some of the developmental disorders of childhood do improve as a child ages, many of the challenges of this group of disorders will persist into the teen years and adulthood. Developmental disorders may include intellectual disability (ranging from mild to profound), autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and Asperger’s syndrome. Adolescents or teens with these disabilities benefit from a structured setting in which they are able to learn adaptive behavior and coping abilities addressed in an individualized plan of care that contains strengths, goals, needs, and objectives, as well as discharge plans. The goal for our developmental and intellectual disability program is to return each client to the least restrictive environment – preferably the home – and maximize his or her potential for independence.

Millcreek Behavioral Health’s treatment facility for developmental disorders in Arkansas offers a long-term residential program for clients between the ages of 6 and 21 that provides specialized training and development programs for children, teens, and adolescents who have developmental disorders. These major developmental disorders may be seen in a number of areas – learning, self-care, communication, self-direction, socialization, mobility, and capability for independent living. Adolescents or teens with developmental delays live in community-based group homes at our treatment center that provide a normal living environment and increase chances for success.
