DIAGNOSES

My Child is Struggling

“We thrive in the nuances – beyond the diagnosis, outside the diagnosis.”

Is your child struggling, and you don’t know why? We can help.

Nuance: a subtle difference in or shade of expression
The nuances are often so subtle that they can be overlooked or discounted. But that’s where we thrive— in the nuances. What does that mean? The myriad expressions of the challenges we support are due to a client’s genetics and environmental factors. Often, clients share specific attributes related to a challenge but fall outside a specific diagnosis. It’s these nuances that complicate effective treatment and intervention.

A whole-person, whole-brain approach seeks to understand the root cause of these difficulties by deeply looking into your child’s neurodevelopmental truths, physiology, emotional-behavioral-relational health, learning style, and social structure.

Because of our methodology and educational model, we can address any condition; slight variations in the brain paired with a client’s environment can create large deviations in physiological, physical, emotional/behavioral expression.

Does your child experience challenges with…
  • Current school or therapeutic placement
  • Grades or academic scores slipping
  • Emotional and behavioral regulation
  • Self-advocacy and esteem
  • Interpersonal relationship building
  • Reading and math
  • Retention of concepts
  • Attention and focus
  • Anxiety
  • Sensory needs

Jacob’s Ladder offers personalized programming for any challenge, even – and especially – ones that fall outside a diagnosis or are diagnosis-adjacent without a specific name. Our programming targets the client’s unique brain function with therapeutic plans to facilitate brain growth and healing.

We offer existing schools and their staff opportunities to train and integrate the Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care® (IWBMC™) into their programs.
Participants train on our global therapeutic model and how to evaluate individual or whole classrooms of students. We welcome collaboration with other professionals, especially when our training and resources benefit students who are struggling.

Evaluation & Assessment.

The IWBMC™ Evaluation considers seven domains and uses 1,300+ assessment metrics to analyze neurodevelopmental progression indicators – often the root of systemic challenges – combined with standardized academic assessments, clinical observation, family reporting, qEEG Analysis, and Nutritional and Physiological Consultation.

Individualized Plans.

The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care® (IWBMC™) acknowledges the complex interplay between brain health, efficiency, and organization – combined with clients’ physiological health and well-being, learning style, and emotional-behavioral-relational experiences – to develop an optimal, therapeutic path forward for each client.

Progress Tracking.

With AHAVA’s database of 4,000+ therapeutic activities, each individualized program is tailored to the client’s needs. Daily data tracking captures clients’ progress, allowing ongoing modification of programs to uphold the appropriate levels of intensity, frequency, and challenge point progression to create lasting, positive changes in the brain.

They are very good at letting him know that was a moment, and it doesn’t define who he is, but they still love him – they didn’t stop loving him because he acted out. The love is real, and it doesn’t just stop when you have a moment of acting out.
