Learning Differences

The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care
and Learning Differences

Students who want to succeed in school and are trying as hard as they can become defeated when they’re asked to just "try harder." Attention and focus issues, handwriting difficulties, word decoding, and reading comprehension challenges can’t be resolved by simply practicing more often. Each of these challenges have specific root neurodevelopmental causes that can be addressed with the right intervention model and frequency.

Our Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care individualized programs work to help students develop new neural pathways that strengthen and improve communication between areas of the brain typically affected in children with learning differences. These include the brain regions responsible for sensory motor work, goal-directed behavior, and word recognition and comprehension.

Diagnoses We See

Learning Differences

Our Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care helps students with learning differences reach their full potential by creating the right neural pathways. We
serve students with various diagnoses including:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dysgraphia
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Specific Learning Delays
Environments for Students with Learning Differences

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.


A Caring Community of Support

With wrap-around support from our team of educators, therapists and student families, we create a compassionate community that sets our students up for success.


Learning Beyond the Classroom

Our students learn in a variety of ways. From integrated academics that enable the study of a single topic across many disciplines, to building focus and attention by growing gardens and nurturing our resident animals.
