Jacob's Ladder believes that great potential lies within each child, regardless of diagnosis. We have built a school that serves and educates children utilizing an intensive array of interventions, helping each child maximize that potential.
Our mission is clear, and our promise is steadfast -
We believe that every brain is capable of new growth and change.
No matter what the condition or diagnosis given we know that the brain can change based on the input and stimulation it receives.
Our job is to provide that intense interaction and stimulation - consistently and daily.
Our mission is to believe in the potential of each child who enters our doors, while readily and lovingly expressing that belief.
That is who we are.
Our core values are:
Hope guides every facet of our work at Jacob's Ladder. In each of our students, we see possibilities, rather than limitations. Time and again the Jacob's Ladder Methodology has proven that with perseverance, patience, and a personal approach, positive growth is possible in any child. The path may be challenging, but it is traversable, step-by-step.
Love and Compassion
Love and compassion are the foundation of all that we do at Jacob's Ladder. We see one another and the families we serve as individuals deserving our respect and compassionate care.
Unconditional Positive Regard
Jacob's Ladder is a positive environment in which to work, learn, and grow. Towards that end, every individual who walks through our doors is treated with unconditional positive regard even amidst the most challenging behaviors.
The Jacob's Ladder approach is an intensive program that combines a nurturing personal relationship with unflagging rigor and discipline, delivering an outcome measurable in the achievement of our students.
We realize that the Jacob's Ladder approach is not a quick fix. It's a process that takes time and commitment from teachers, staff, students, and families. At Jacob's Ladder, we are committed to delivering each intervention at the right frequency, intensity and duration to create dramatic and lasting change in the brain of each student we serve.
Our mission is clear; our promise is steadfast, and through unwavering hope and relentless courage we persevere through every challenge in making good on that promise.
