Full Spectrum Autism
The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care
and Full Spectrum Autism
A child with an autism diagnosis frequently has areas of the brain that over-communicate and become in essence “locked” in a pattern. Other critical areas of the brain used for social connection and rich 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 students’ brains that are overly activated while building up areas of underactivity. Many students who fall within the autism spectrum also benefit greatly from a robust sensory motor program delivered daily with adequate frequency, intensity, and duration.
Diagnoses We See
Our Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care helps students with full spectrum autism reach their full potential by creating the right neural pathways. We serve students with diagnoses including:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Sensory Processing Challenges
Environments for Students with Full Spectrum Autism
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.
No one is defined by one difficult moment. Our methodology helps each student adjust to new situations through self-regulation. Learning to reset and rezone can help counteract the challenges of changes in routine.
We hold our students in the highest regard. Establishing a foundation of trusting relationships sets students up for success and helps them achieve breakthroughs.
Learn About Our Success Treating Autism
Scientifically Sound Approaches Delivered in Safe, Loving Environments
We target the hubs of the brain most often affected in children with autism, like those responsible for processing and synthesizing sight, sound, and emotions. With the right interventions delivered in ways they'll be best received, we can achieve lasting, positive change.
