Genetic Syndromes

The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care
and Genetic Syndromes

A genetic syndrome diagnosis does not dictate a client's potential for success. The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care addresses various genetic syndromes by developing brain growth and change through targeted stimulation and intervention.

Keeping each client's unique neurodevelopmental strengths and challenges central to our program, we first focus on the foundational lower brain centers. From our foundation-up model, we strengthen the function and specifically target areas of sensory-motor processing, motor planning, modulation of emotions, and visual and auditory processing.

Environments for Clients with Genetic Syndromes

Evaluation. Assessment. Individualized Plans.

Each client receives a comprehensive evaluation of their neurodevelopment, physiological health, learning style, and emotional, behavioral, and relational balance. The evaluation includes a global neurodevelopmental assessment unique to Jacob's Ladder of over 1,300 metrics. In addition, we conduct a comprehensive academic assessment, a nutritional consultation, and a qEEG brain map to determine regions of the brain that struggle to communicate.

Based on the evaluation, each client receives a Model of Care tailored to their academic and therapeutic needs. This way, we develop the right neural pathways to reach each client's full potential.
