Growing Strong for 19 years!

Jacob’s Ladder Pediatric Rehabilitation is a register, 501(c) non-profit organization rooted in Northwest Indiana.

Opened in 1998 by Mariann Frigo, an occupational therapist, who knew firsthand the importance of obtaining quality therapy services during the early development of special needs children. Jacob, Mariann’s son and our namesake, was born with Down syndrome and needed regular therapy sessions for the first six years of his life.

Early intervention makes all the difference in a child’s ability to do well in school, develop a circle of friends, and, eventually, to be gainfully employed as an adult. We are here to provide the tools and resources to parents so that every child can achieve their potential.
