In 2010, a Special Education Center was created, expanding therapy services to students from kindergarten through 12th grade. In 2011, the center established the Four State's first Autism Diagnostic Team, which offers the resources of an entire team of diagnostic professionals.

The Ozark Center is part of Freeman Health System based in Joplin. It provides comprehensive behavioral health services to children, adults and families from Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
