temporary
Life Skill Technician (Former Employee) –  ArkansasJune 7, 2018
I don't advise working for this place unless its temporary. Working with a lot of women, there was a lot of drama. Of course, there were good people that would help you out but I wouldn't suggest this place to anyone.

Overall a positive learning experience.
Graduate Student Clinician (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, AROctober 19, 2017
Externing at APF was challenging as it has it's own separate rules and policies. Plus, the clientele was mostly children who were nonverbal and mobility impaired. It was an interesting population to work with and I'm glad to have received experience working with them. Time management and pacing was key when working with a caseload of over 50 clients while providing quality therapy.

Life Skills Technician (Current Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARJuly 16, 2017
They all treated me like an employee would want to be treated like. Great staff and supervisors. We all worked as a team to achieve a goal everyday and that goal was to make sure all 58 children in the facility were taken care of.

Assistant Supervisor/ Life skills Tech (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARJuly 7, 2017
Overall It was a wonderful place to work. If u don't have a passion and patience for kids that job isn't for you. Its a few places they can advance in as far as more pay for that type of work. The children are great and the workers are awesome.

Activities Coordinator (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARMay 10, 2017
The purpose of the facility is great, if your heart is in the right place it can be very fulfilling! Down side is that there is a lot of pettiness and what seems like immaturity with a power trip. If you are use to this environment and know how to stay out of the way of said cliques then it can truly be a good work place helping children! Otherwise i witnessed people overstep their professional boundaries more than once.

Private owned, cheapest bidder wins. Bad benefits
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Current Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARApril 7, 2017
Low budget to work with due to privately owned. No advancement opp. Unreliable staff. Revolving door type place. They do care for the children- but being involved with DHS and cruddy parents makes it hard to do anything..these kids are disabled and it is a maintenance type of nursing not saving.
Pros
Easy work- lots of med passes for nurses
Cons
Horrible insurance benefits

Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARMarch 24, 2017
It's a great job, and the work is very rewarding. The staff can be hard to work with. Overall the work is strainous. But rewarding.
It's CNA work, which is taking care of mentally and physically ill children from birth to 21.
Changing, feeding, and cleaning is what you could expect.

Child Care Interaction
Life Skills Tech (Current Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARSeptember 6, 2014
Hands on interaction with helping better physically challenged children gain more independence is the most enjoyable part of this job. Rather its teaching them how to feed themselves, how to walk, stand, dress themselves or positively interact with others. It can be very beneficial and life changing if you have the courage and heart to make a difference in a young child's life.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
not enough pto
