Learn about the education services program at Little Creek Behavioral Health
When a child or adolescent is suffering from the symptoms of a mental health disorder, it can be challenging for them to succeed in school, their social life, or their after-school job. Getting a young person developmentally appropriate care is crucial to helping them start to live a happier, more fulfilling life.
Sometimes a child or adolescent needs an intensive level of care provided in a residential setting so that they have the time and space they need to truly experience healing. But that doesn’t mean that their education should be put on hold while they receive the therapy they need to get well.

Information on what to expect in the education services program at Little Creek Behavioral Health
Just like a young person’s local school, the education services at Little Creek Behavioral Health operate six hours a day in a classroom setting. Special education teachers run each class with the help of licensed therapists and other support staff, who reinforce the therapeutic environment in the educational setting.
We assign each child or adolescent to a class based on their grade level or age so that they receive developmentally appropriate curricula that meets state regulations. Because the educational setting can be challenging for young people who are coping with the effects of a mental health challenge, the children and adolescents who participate in the education services at our facility in Conway, Arkansas, benefit from the additional support of licensed therapists.
If a young person experiences any issues or concerns while engaging in the school day, a special education teacher or therapist can help them find a healthy and productive way to express their feelings so that they can continue with the lesson. If a child or adolescent needs time or space away from others to fully express and process their emotions, our staff is trained to help them do so in a safe and healthy way.
