Little Learners Enrichment Center

The Little Learners Enrichment Center is an early intervention program for toddlers and preschoolers. The children enrolled are at-risk because of emotional, behavioral, or learning problems resulting from such things as premature birth, exposure to toxins, abuse, or neurological deficits.

Services

The program follows an early childhood education model that emphasizes the acquisition of social, physical, and academic skills. The goal of the program is to teach the children skills that will enable them to eventually mainstream into regular education.

Individual or group therapy occurs on a daily basis and may include cognitive/behavioral, play, and behavior modification. Art, language, math, music, physical activities and more are provided to encourage the child’s mental, emotional, and physical development. Home-based family services are provided as needed to help ensure family preservation and support.

Referral Process

A child can be referred to the Little Learners by a mental health professional, local school district, county social worker, hospital, child care provider, or parents. The child must be aged 16 months to 6 years, and have a clinical diagnosis from Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV).
