Targeted interventions help students with ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and specific learning delays achieve their goals by addressing root neurodevelopmental causes.

Why Jacob's Ladder Helps Children with Special Needs Succeed

Students of Jacob’s Ladder benefit from more than 20 years of research, discovery, and implementation of the groundbreaking Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care, developed at Jacob’s Ladder. Frequent, intensive, and specifically selected interventions, delivered in safe, loving environments, support development of a well-connected and effectively communicating brain. To achieve meaningful and measurable outcomes, both programs and their delivery are equally important. This is the Jacob’s Ladder difference. It is how we help students with any neurological or behavioral challenge achieve more significant outcomes in shorter timeframes than other educational programs or special needs schools.
