Additional Interventions

Science-Supported Interventions Lead to Brain Growth and Improved Function

Along with our four environments, Jacob’s Ladder offers a variety of proven interventions that support successful implementation of the Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care. Combinations of these therapies may be part of students’ individualized care programs, and some are available to non-students in need of neurodevelopmental services.

  • Neurofeedback training enhances self-regulation by targeting frequencies of brain wave activity. It can normalize excessive and deficient activity. Quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG), or brain mapping, shows the areas of the brain that require neurofeedback therapy.

  • Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) uses modified classical music through air conduction and bone conduction to provide the deepest form of listening. This therapy targets language development, sound sensitivities, auditory discrimination challenges, and overall attention and focus.

  • Animal Assisted Therapy provides children opportunities to build their social, communicative, independence, and self-regulation skills in a natural way. The Roswell campus is home to alpacas, donkeys, chickens, rabbits, a miniature pony, a variety of fish, and a campus cat. All student animal interactions are facilitated by Jacob’s Ladder staff.

  • Art Therapy aids students with their visual/spatial skills, communication, relationship skills with peers, and emotional/behavioral self-regulation.

  • Taste Of Love Bakery is an on-campus working bakery. Participation provides creative opportunities for students to interact socially and learn skills of attending, planning, and follow through, as well as entrepreneurship principles.

  • Mental Health Services are offered through licensed professionals who work directly with students to address individual goals in conjunction with their customized Jacob’s Ladder programs.

  • Outdoor Adventure Based Learning enables students to work on individual goals outdoors in the intentionally created living classrooms of Jacob’s Ladder campuses.

  • Field Trips can encompass a wide variety of activities that may focus on community service, daily living skills, academic exposure, or, simply fun. They all encourage students to generalize and apply learned skills across environments.

  • Summer Camp Options include day programs and recreational camps, including on-campus intensives, adventure-based options (hiking), day excursions (Atlanta Zoo), and overnight experiences.

  • Music Therapy combines social and emotional skills with fine and gross motor skills to create a fun and exciting learning experience. Jacob’s Ladder partners with The George Center for Music Therapy to bring weekly group sessions to the Roswell and Buckhead campus.

  • Speech, Physical & Occupational Therapy are provided through a partnership with Licensed Service Providers from respected local therapy practices. ST, PT, and OT sessions are held on-site at Jacob’s Ladder campuses to address specific student goals.
