Autism Spectrum Disorder

The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care
and Autism Spectrum Disorder (Levels 1, 2 & 3)

Individuals with autism spectrum disorder diagnoses frequently have areas of the brain that over-communicate and become “locked” in a pattern. Other critical brain areas used for social connection and language development become under-activated as the “locked” areas use an overabundance of cognitive energy.

Our Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care individualized programs work to quiet the areas of clients’ brains that are overly activated while building up underactive areas. Many clients who fall within the autism spectrum also benefit greatly from a robust sensory motor program delivered daily with adequate frequency, intensity, and duration.

Environments for Clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Evaluation. Assessment. Individualized Plans.

Clients receive comprehensive evaluations assessing their neurodevelopment, physiological health, learning style, and emotional, behavioral, and relational balance. The evaluation includes a global neurodevelopmental assessment unique to Jacob's Ladder with over 1,300 assessment metrics. 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 client receives an individualized program tailored to their academic and therapeutic needs. This way, we develop the right neural pathways to reach each client's full potential.
