KIDS FIRST-Little Rock was the original site during the research stage known as the Infant Health and Development Program. The program began as a national research project, one of eight such projects across the country, to determine the effects of early intervention for premature babies. The Little Rock site was the only one to continue serving very young, medically at-risk children when the research ended.
The clinic was originally located in a former church building with partitioned treatment rooms that served the community for 12 years. In 1999, the renovation of a nearby building was completed and the children moved into new treatment rooms. Success stories have abounded through the years, and with several original staff members and other professionals and paraprofessionals still helping to guide the development of young children, the success stories will continue.
KIDS FIRST works in cooperation with local, area and state colleges to provide observation and training to nursing, early childhood and special education students. The Department of Pediatrics at UAMS also makes KIDS FIRST a part of the teaching experience for Pediatric Residents and Interns.
For more information contact the clinic at 501-526-8770.
Donations made through the UAMS Foundation will benefit the children served in Little Rock.
