Parent Testimonial: Jackson B.

Time and again, we hear from families about the ways Jacob’s Ladder has changed their lives for the better. How we gave HOPE to a family who’d previously had none. How we LOVE their children not in spite of their differences but because of what makes them special. How we’ve transcended the limitations of mere disorders and established a new TRUTH based on the child’s abilities and potential.    We are so thankful for these families and the job that they bring to us.

During these sessions we’ve been addressing Jake’s anxiety around the difficulty he often experiences interacting with new individuals. Jake has worked hard to recognize where these anxieties originate from and has learned to utilize coping skills as well as problem solving skills to work towards overcoming them.  ARead More
