Overcoming Obstacles with Jake

This is Jake. Jake generally uses sign language to communicate. For Christmas he received an iPhone and has been learning to use it to aid in communicating with others who don’t know sign language.  At Jacob’s Ladder, Jake participates weekly in mental health sessions with the assistance of his sign-language interpreter, Tara. 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

Success Story: Miracle

When we first met Miracle in February 2014, her parents were unsure if she was able to process any auditory language. At her initial evaluation they said that she probably understood less than 3% of what was being said around her, as she had been pronounced deaf in her left ear and had moderate hearing loss in her right ear. In fact, Miracle had been previously diagnosed with Auditory Neuropathy, where the inner ear structure responsible for perceiving sound is thought to be intact, but there were issues transmitting the input through the auditory nerve to the brain. Since the JLRead More
