Kids Unlimited Learning Academy recently opened two clinics, formerly operated by Elizabeth Richardson Center. The clinics are in Fayetteville and Siloam Springs.

Jonesboro-based Miracle Kids Success Academy is the parent company of Kids Unlimited and has been providing services to special needs children since 2009.

CEO Shelly Keller said the Siloam Springs clinic is the first in Benton County. Kids Unlimited and Miracle Kids have clinics in nine Arkansas counties.

The 4,800-square-foot clinic at 1300 N. Patriot St. in Siloam Springs is expected to have 25 full-time employees within a year, Keller said. Alicia Trujillo is the clinic director.

Keller said the 11,500-square-foot clinic at 1760 N. Woodland Ave. in Fayetteville is expected to have 50 full-time employees within a year. Nicole Helms is the clinic director.

Both clinics are being leased from Elizabeth Richardson Center.

“The opportunity to transition our children’s programming to Kids Unlimited opens the door for ERC to explore new and innovative ways of serving teens and adults as they progress through their various stages of life, including specific programming for youth graduating from high school and older adults who face the challenges of aging,” said Kim Aaron, executive director of Elizabeth Richardson Center.

Kids Unlimited now has clinics in Farmington, Fayetteville, Siloam Springs and Springdale. Miracle Kids and Kids Unlimited provide services to more than 700 children at their 12 Arkansas clinics. The companies employ more than 100 licensed therapists and over 300 employees who provide educational services, speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, nursing services and applied behavioral analysis therapy. They primarily serve children from birth to kindergarten.

“We are committed to the support and growth of our professional team by promoting clinical excellence through continuing education, interdisciplinary teamwork and community outreach,” Keller said. “We will continue to grow and meet the needs of the NWA community as their families’ needs grow as well.”
