AEDD also provides early intervention and preschool learning for children of all abilities at the Sammie Gail Sanders Children's Learning Center in North Little Rock.
The goal of AEDD is to maximize the potential of each person served. Its new Resource Center aims to provide integration into the community in the least restrictive and most appropriate environment possible.
