About Our Education Services Program

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.

At Little Creek Behavioral Health, we provide therapeutic education services to children and adolescents ages 12-18 who come to our facility in Conway, Arkansas, to heal from mental health concerns.

We ensure that the children and adolescents entrusted to our care meet their education requirements while receiving proven, evidence-based therapeutic interventions in a warm, safe environment.

When a young person in your care comes to Little Creek Behavioral Health for help with a mental health challenge, they don’t have to choose between their health and their education. Our residential facility in Conway, Arkansas, provides the resources they need to achieve long-term success.

Please note that Little Creek Behavioral Health currently only accepts out-of-state residents for care. At this time, we cannot provide care for children or adolescents who live in Arkansas.

What to Expect

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.
