Youth Autism Spectrum and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Program

Youth Autism Spectrum and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Program

Inpatient Treatment for Teens on the Spectrum

At Springwoods Behavioral Health, located in Fayetteville, Arkansas, our inpatient center for dually diagnosed youth is designed to provide treatment for adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 with autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities and other related developmental disabilities.

We tailor services for children by age and by developmental level. Each child has a team of doctors, therapists, behavior specialists, nurses, registered behavior technicians and other professionals who work together to create a treatment plan with new tools and resources to help our patients find a new path to success.

Over the course of treatment, the team uses interventions, collects data and connects families with resources for after discharge to help continue the success that started at Springwoods.
