Job Details

Jacob’s Ladder Neurodevelopmental School and Therapy Center is looking for compassionate, steadfast, and self-directed individuals to join our team as Neurodevelopmental Providers. Applicants must desire the opportunity to undergo intensive skill and knowledge training in preparation to work with individuals experiencing brain-based challenges.

Jacob’s Ladder is a non-profit, SAIS-SACS accredited private school serving clients pre-k through 12th grade, utilizing a whole-brain, whole-person educational approach. Additionally, as a therapeutic and rehabilitative-based entity, we help individuals from infancy to young adulthood using a comprehensive, integrated, evidence-based therapeutic service model. Our in-center program offerings depend on the needs of the individuals we serve. Providers can expect a high degree of one-to-one intervention, coupled with low ratios of clients to providers (i.e., two-to-one, three-to-one ratios) and small group instruction with multiple providers placed in each group. In addition, Jacob’s Ladder offers program settings that specialize in meeting the specific needs of our clients through highly intensive, therapeutic means - all facilitated by the proprietary Jacob’s Ladder Methodology and Interpersonal Whole Brain Model of Care™ (IWBMC™). Our specialized settings include the Ladder, Hope School, Compass, and Community of Care Programs. Jacob’s Ladder serves clients experiencing neurological challenges leading to difficulties with communication, cognitive ability, academic success, self-regulation, mobility, emotional-behavioral-relational disorders, and more.

Diagnoses Served at Jacob's Ladder:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder
  • Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Learning Delays
  • Dyscalculia
  • Dysgraphia
  • Dyslexia
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Apraxia 
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) 
  • Speech Delays
  • Genetic Conditions
  • Acquired Brain Injuries - Traumatic and Non-Traumatic

We offer intensive, personalized interventions for individuals experiencing neurodevelopmental, educational, and rehabilitative challenges. Our highly skilled and specially trained providers implement programming within a supportive, nurturing environment. So often, individuals experiencing these challenges do not receive adequate stimulation to activate new growth within the brain over a long enough span of time. Implementing our customized program harnesses the power of neuroplasticity to facilitate the development of new pathways within the brain, activating new growth, function, and learning potential. With this day-in and day-out commitment, we welcome clients from various educational and rehabilitative settings to Jacob’s Ladder as an ideal environment for healing and transformation.

The Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care™ uniquely addresses the core issues that are specific to the diagnostic categories above, including but not limited to:

  • Emotional, behavioral, and relational challenges
  • Global functioning delays
  • Processing of incoming sensory information
  • Mood and behavior regulation
  • Language processing and communication
  • Mobility challenges
  • Deficits in social and relational engagement

Through 25 years of experience working with and evaluating individuals experiencing these challenges, we recognize that the brain’s deficient or excessive connectivity patterns lead to the core issues of the challenges at hand. Often, because of the impact of these connectivity patterns, information cannot flow efficiently between brain regions, hindering the brain’s ability to communicate effectively. We also consider how foundational levels of the brain function, as higher-level cognitive skills and functioning depend upon organization within the lower brain regions. Taking an intentional, all-encompassing, and brain-based approach to examine and execute a targeted action plan for clients navigating these difficulties is the mission of the Jacob’s Ladder IWBMC™.

How We Support Clients:

  • Individual program design targeting the neurobiological framework for each client
  • Utilization of qEEG brain map analysis for corroboration with guided treatment intervention plan and progress comparison
  • Use of a collaborative approach with consistent wrap-around support between school and home, ensuring consistency of care
  • Sensory regulation intervention to reorganize maladaptive pathways of sensory processing
  • Frequent engagement in cardiovascular and cross-lateral movements to promote new neuronal growth and communication within the brain
  • Increasing awareness of emotions and their connection to thoughts and behaviors to increase self-regulation abilities
  • Addressing social and relational challenges through structured peer interaction, social skills groups, and mentoring opportunities
  • Unique Whole-Brain Language Approach to address the complex interplay of factors involved in language processing, production, articulation, and functional communication
  • Teaching academic skills through a multi-sensory approach and by addressing any underlying visual processing challenges
  • Addressing neurological organization through auditory and visual sequential processing work, working memory skills, processing speed, and retrieval abilities 
  • Addressing the organization of the neurological system through assessment of the dominant hemisphere and hemispheric specialization 
  • Building self-regulation abilities and the ability to participate and complete tasks
  • Frequent opportunities for movement and flexible seating options for clients who have limited independent mobility
  • Addressing Early Reflex Integration through specified movement activities and patterns
  • Developing the mind-body connection to maintain self-regulation abilities
  • Teaching self-referencing, distress tolerance, and mindfulness skills
  • Trauma-Informed Care approach
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Facilitate opportunities for future endeavors such as community involvement, vocational training, or post-secondary education to provide exposure in these areas
  • Participation in interventions that promote functional living skills, experiential learning opportunities, and vocational skill-building
  • Build upon existing strengths and interests while encouraging clients to explore other purposeful and fulfilling opportunities for their future growth and success
  • With an additional focus on rehabilitative care and support, intervention plans built through the Jacob's Ladder IWBMC™ can benefit a wide range of individuals needing customized, person-centered care such as veterans, young adults, and adults experiencing functional or mental health-related difficulties
