Springfield is the third largest city in Missouri with around 156,000 people. The nickname for the city is the Queen City of the Ozarks, and is thought to be the cultural center of the area.1 Interesting facts about the city, which will pique the interest of boys, is the Wild Bill Hickok shootout that occurred in Springfield in 1865, and is recorded as the first shootout in the country. The city is also known as having some of the wildest weather in the country. There are many cultural things for the whole family to engage in, such as visiting the historic theaters - Gillioz Theater and Landers Theatre. There is also the Springfield Ballet, Springfield Symphony Orchestra, and the Springfield Regional Opera. The kids will enjoy the Creamery Arts Center that also provides workshops and hands-on activities for people of all ages. Springfield is also known for its variations of cashew chicken, a popular Chinese dish.

The Arc of the Ozarks provides services to children and their families in order to meet the challenges that Autism spectrum disorders present. Autism spectrum disorders impact one in 91 children in the United States. With that in mind, The Arc devises an individualized, strengths-based plan that improves the ability of autistic persons to function in the community. The agency also coordinates with other agencies in the area to provide services that support intellectual, social, and vocational development. To learn more, call 417-864-7887.2

Reducing stigma regarding mental illness is one of the primary goals of the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Southwest Missouri. Education is key to reducing stigma, so the agency oversees several programs aimed at keeping the public informed. Suicide prevention workshops are offered, as is a Mental Health First Aid course. The agency also offers a course to shed light on depression in the workplace, as well as a program that teaches schoolchildren to ask for help when they feel down. To inquire about these services, call 417-864-3027.3

Current Education

The mental health needs of exceptional children are addressed by the Springfield Public Schools' Special Services Department and the Phelps Center for Gifted Education. Children with intellectual, emotional, physical, or mental challenges take part in a comprehensive educational program that seeks to meet their academic needs, as well as prepare them to function in life at the highest possible level. Each child in the Special Services Department has an individualized plan that outlines the services he or she is provided, as well as goals for social and emotional growth.4 Children who demonstrate above-average scholastic aptitude can participate in one of several programs that provide high-level academic opportunities. The programs offered by the Springfield Public Schools take into account the unique social and emotional needs of intellectually gifted children. As a result, children participate in activities that build social skills and promote positive peer relationships.5 More detailed information about these services is available by calling 417-523-0000.
