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
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.
