Sometimes if I close my eyes, take a deep breath and really focus, I can find it. That very vivid mental image of myself staring in the mirror back in the spring of 2017. If I concentrate hard enough, I can almost place myself right back in that spot. The rush of a thousand different feelings, most of them dark, flood over me. I am a 21-year-old college student, and I’m supposed to be “living my best life,” as we said back then.
Welcome to Pediatrics Plus Counseling & Diagnostics
Pediatrics Plus Counseling and Diagnostics is committed to providing a full continuum of outpatient care to meet the behavioral, emotional and educational needs of our clients and families. PPCD began in 2012 after receiving several requests for learning disability testing. Since 2012, the PPCD team has evaluated and empowered over 500 families from all over the state. Recently, PPCD expanded their services to include outpatient behavioral health counseling.
Our services are designed to benefit children and adolescents ages 3-21. At PPCD we believe in meeting families where they are and providing the necessary supports to ensure maximum cognitive and emotional growth. Evaluations and counseling sessions are designed to answer the specific questions and provide relief to the particular needs of the family and client.
Regardless of the services you receive, you can expect to be given the same exceptional level of care we would demand for own families.
In March, Arkansas families experienced major disruption as schools were forced to close in response to Covid-19. Parents and guardians grumbled and moaned as work and home lives were transitioned to accommodate virtual learning. We told ourselves that if we could just make it until May, the pandemic would be over, and school would return to normal in the fall.
