The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of of Care
and Cerebral Palsy
The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care is capable of delivering very specific stimulation to the areas of the brain most often affected with a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. The brain can repair itself with three major factors: sufficient oxygenation, good nutrition, and a targeted program of stimulation to foster new growth.
The key areas requiring dedicated attention in a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis include the areas of the brain associated with sensory input, sensorimotor interpretation, movement, and proper sequencing and mirroring of movement. It is never too late. Consistent input and stimulation through our model can create growth at any age.
Diagnoses We See
Cerebral Palsy can cause moderate to severe movement, muscle tone, and coordination issues, along with sight and hearing challenges, intellectual disabilities, and seizure activity.
Environments for Students with Cerebral Palsy
Evaluation. Assessment. Individualized Plans.
Each student receives a comprehensive evaluation around his or her neurodevelopment, physiological health, learning style, and emotional, behavioral, and relational balance. The evaluation includes a global neurodevelopmental assessment unique to Jacob's Ladder of more than 300 indicators. In addition, we conduct a comprehensive academic assessment, a nutritional consultation, and a qEEG brain map to determine regions of the brain that are struggling to communicate.
Based on the evaluation, each student receives a model of care tailored to his or her academic and therapeutic needs. In this way, we develop the right neural pathways to reach each child's full potential.
Uniquely Jacob's Ladder
Our method of care and mission to serve are what set us apart. Our approach marries scientific, proven data about the brain's ability to change with the power of human connection.
Our multidisciplinary approach draws from hundreds of interventions to be completed consistently and with high intensity. They are consistently refined by the latest research in neuroscience and our own depth of experience.
