Our Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care is individually designed and implemented daily in loving environments to change your child's life — no matter the behavioral or neurological challenge

Your Child Can Reach Their Full Potential Through A Better Connected Brain

Serving Infants To Young Adults

Any Neurological Or Behavioral Challenge

Grounded In Science & Guided By Love


We See Lives & Brains Change Daily

Through our two campuses and our remote services, Jacob's Ladder has transformed the lives of over 4,000 children with various behavioral and neurological challenges.

Every day, we see children manage their emotions and thrive in group settings, children who struggle with social cues establish eye contact, non-verbal children grasp language, and children who have struggled to learn take steps toward academic achievement.

Why are we seeing these results? Because our Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care is grounded in science and guided by love.

Like You, We Want Your Child To Reach Their Full Potential

"I tell people all the time – it’s a miracle. He is getting his life back. And we are too. We used to not be able to go anywhere because of the worry of what will happen. The last couple of months is the most peace we have felt in a very long time.”

- A Hope School Parent


Founded Because Of A Mother's Love For Her Son

What began as a mother’s refusal to give up hope for her son’s future has grown into a successful, thriving environment for families of children with a variety of neurological and behavioral challenges.


Amy O’Dell’s son, Jacob, was born with significant developmental delays. His early life was filled with endless evaluations and conflicting diagnoses. Despite the discouragement and sense of helplessness, Amy believed in Jacob’s potential. 


By studying the brain-based neurodevelopmental approach, Amy began to develop the Whole-Brain Model of Care. Through a customized activity program, she began to see the creation of new capacity and reorganization in Jacob’s brain. Jacob's growth and change was vast, measurable, and replicable.


Seeing a need in other families with stories similar to her own, Amy began providing the Whole-Brain Model of Care, changing lives and brains one student at a time. Jacob now has his driver’s license and works as an instructor at Jacob's Ladder.
