The Learning Center has provided services to individuals with disabilities in Northeast Arkansas since 1959.
At that time, however, there were two separate programs being operated: The Cottage of Hope and the Dr. John T. Gray Memorial School. In 1990, these two consolidated and formed what is presently known as The Learning Center. Currently, The Learning Center provides facilities and services for children with disabilities from birth to five years of age on two campuses in Jonesboro. Home-based and community intervention services are also provided in Northeast Arkansas. Physical, occupational and speech therapy are critical components of the services system as well as a variety of other support programs.
The Learning Center also provides adult development services for adults with disabilities. The Administrative offices are located at 2808 Fox Meadow Lane in Jonesboro.
The Learning Center receives funds from Arkansas Developmental Disabilities Services, the Department of Human Services, United Way of Northeast Arkansas, and UCP. Donations from individuals, civic groups and other organizations are also welcomed.
The Learning Center is always pleased to provide appropriate acknowledgments for all memorial gifts. These funds permit us to continually upgrade our program and more effectively meet the needs of individuals with disabilities.
