I'm moving to Minneapolis in the next year and want to start looking at school districts and cares and so on?? Any help would be appreciated? Is there a school that is good or bad that I should stay away from!

I know very little about minneapolis, but in the past I worked at the Jewish Community Center on St. Paul ave. in St. Paul. They had a very inclusive policy and would be a good resource to have. Give them a call and they'll point you in the right direction. Also try Mt. Zion school/congregation in St. Paul on Summit ave. Both of these are mainly oriented towards the Jewish community but would be happy to help anyone.

I'm not sure how old your child is, but Lake Harriet School in Southwest Minneapolis has an autism program, as do many schools in the area. I've heard good things about the early-intervention program for autism as well (Minneapolis Public Schools). If your child is young and you need childcare, you should take a look at Fraser School in Richfield.

Default THANKS to those who responded

He is 7 yrs old will be 8 by the time I move. He currently has a good IEP that I can at least use as a good start I hope BUT... need to know that they will be willing to work with me! I just want to make sure that I can set him up well because I have move 2 schools here becuase they wanted to just put him in a special needs room with no hep for his needs! That will not work for me. THANKS to everyone who responded.

I recently relocated to the MSP area with an autistic 7 year old last year. The ISD 191 (Eagan, Savage, Burnsville) district has been excellent to us - good luck!

I have a 14 year old autistic child attending Lions Gate Academy, a public charter school in Crystal. You may want to reach out to them for suggestions on elementary and secondary school options.

I was going to recommend Lions Gate as well.

I know someone whose son has Aspbergers whose son is in the Hopkins district. She's shared with me some of the resources they have and they're impressive. They have a psychologist for the district that deals specifically with ASD concerns.

Along with schools you may what to research county resources for services as well. Some counties in MN have better resources and programs for disabled children then others. I would suggest starting with ARC-Twin Cities for information. Our neighbors have an autistic child and are thrilled to death with the 196 schools and the programs that Dakota County offers.
