School-Based Therapy | Private School

Stand out as a private school that offers a unique approach to therapy!

Capernaum offers an innovative way to provide physical, occupational, and speech therapy services in the convenience of theprivate school setting!  This novel approach helps the student reach optimal potential in school, at home, and in the community, is supportive of school staff, and is greatly desired by parents!

"This is the second year that our school has partnered with Capernaum. The staff is extremely flexible, knowledgeable, and an enormously wonderful addition to our school. The size of our OT, PT, and speech programs has more than doubled since they have started. They are very quick to move their schedules around to accommodate the students. The Capernaum staff works cohesively with our teachers: coming into classrooms for groups and observations, giving them tools to use to help our students be successful, and always making time to speak with them if there is a concern.  Parents also really appreciate the review and reflection after each therapy session with their child." 

~ Sarah Fitzgerald, Dean of Students, Academy of Whole Learning
