Who We Are
Located in Little Rock, Ark., Easterseals Academy at Riverdale is a private school and outpatient therapy clinic that offers services to students with developmental disabilities in the central Arkansas area.
Easterseals Arkansas' mission is to provide exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs have equal opportunities to live, learn, work, and play in their communities. The purpose of Easterseals Arkansas is to change the way the world views and defins disabilities by making profound, positive difference in people's lives every day.
At the Academy, we ENCOURAGE the students, ACCEPT their individuality, and LOVE unconditionally.
The Academy is eligible to participate in the Arkansas Succeed Scholarship program, which provides scholarships for students with disabilities.
Easterseals Academy at Riverdale focuses on the basics of reading, writing, language, and arithmetic for children 5-21+ who need and will benefit from the integration of academics and therapy. Functional and appropriate social skills are taught through Strategies for Teaching Based on Autism Research (STAR). Skills taught are generalized throughout the school day. We offer small class sizes allowing every student to receive the attention and support they need to work toward their potential.
In addition to challenging academics, the Academy also encourages students to develop socially and emotionally with an emphasis on appropriate social and life skills growth.
