Public School-Based Therapy: Collaborative Learning

Capernaum Pediatric Therapy has provided therapy services for children, ages birth through 21 years, at charter schools, traditional public schools, private schools, and child development centers in the Twin Cities area since the 1980s.

Capernaum therapists are licensed and certified with the State of Minnesota. They are experienced in special education assessment, IEP/IFSP development, Response to Intervention, Functional Behavior Assessment, and Behavior Intervention Plans. Our therapists use self-regulation strategies, classroom modifications, adaptations, and accommodations to help students learn in the least restrictive environment.

Capernaum believes in providing an integrated service delivery model. We practice shared ownership of goals and objectives to address an individual student’s needs. Our therapists strive to support all school staff members who will work with the student throughout his/her school day.
