WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Our Developmental Treatment program is designed for infants, toddlers, preschool, and school age children who are struggling to meet developmental milestones, exhibit developmental delays and/or have a medical diagnosis warranting nursing services. Children enrolled in this program attend our early education program daily Monday-Friday where individualize skills are addressed in a enriched classroom setting.
Enrollment in our day treatment program is preceded by an intake evaluation, which is conducted by a fully qualified health professional. Information from the evaluation is used to assess the child’s developmental and emotional condition and the diagnosis will determine if our program would appropriately fit the needs of the child.
Prior to enrollment in the EIDT program, all potential patients are required to complete an external developmental screener conducted by Optum, an outside provider who is contracted by the state. Screenings are scheduled by our clinic and occur onsite biweekly.
Children referred for further evaluation following the screening will be evaluated onsite by our clinic evaluator who will administer a comprehensive developmental evaluation.
To receive EIDT day habilitation services, a child must have a documented developmental disability or delay, as shown on the results of an annual comprehensive developmental evaluation and demonstrate a documented need for at least one of the following services:
Children enrolled in our program will receive high quality care in classrooms designed to meet the individualized needs of each child enrolled in our program. All children will have individualized treatment plans outlining areas that improvement can occur with intervention. At KidSPOT Walnut Ridge, our children will experience:
When our treatment team determines that a child no longer needs the services provided in the day treatment program and can be effectively treated in a less restrictive environment, a discharge plan will be design to make a smooth transition into the child’s next level of care. Most children transition to area providers or to our ABCSS or private tuition programs.
Transition is a time of celebration as it indicates that your child has completed all their goals and objectives and no longer requires an individualized plan of care and will likely function in a classroom of peers successfully!
