Jacob's Ladder Center

Jacob's Ladder is an SAIS-SACS accredited, SB-10 approved private school, serving students Pre-K through twelfth grade with any kind of neurological disorder - from Down syndromeCerebral Palsy and Traumatic Brain Injury to a range of learning disabilities and genetic disorders - although 60% of our students have been diagnosed with Autism. We offer adult services for stroke patients, and we also offer the Jacob's Ladder Model of Intervention in our Therapy Center on an hourly basis.

Grounded in science, guided by love, and delivered with an unwavering commitment to see beyond diagnoses, our intensive, individualized, research-based approach works.

Jacob's Ladder students regularly reach milestones once thought impossible. On a daily basis, we see nonverbal children grasp language, children with autism establish eye contact, and children who have struggled to learn take steps toward academic achievement.

Come see and feel where HOPE resides.

The Bill O'Dell Memorial Fund

Bill O'Dell and Amy O'Dell in 1963

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Cor. 13:4-7)

Since its founding in 1998, Jacob’s Ladder has enjoyed the support of our Board, faculty, staff, parents, the business community, and private foundations. Without our Partners, we could not have served the thousands of students and families we have served. We can’t begin to express our gratitude for their generosity and support.

HOPE is a sustaining, motivating, and healing force in the lives of those touched by special needs and the people of Jacob’s Ladder provide it in abundance. quote-end.png
