Student Services

Special Education

Special Education is specialized instruction specific to a child at no cost to parents. To receive special education services, children must meet specific criteria set by the State of Minnesota and the Federal Government. 

Our Special Education department serves approximately 1100 children who range in age from birth to age 21. We offer a wide range of service delivery models. Most students receive services in their neighborhood school and, when possible, in their regular class setting. Service models include home-based services for infants and toddlers, 1:1 instruction, small group instruction, instruction in the general education classroom, and off-site instruction as determined by the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) team. 

The Special Education department includes multiple individuals, all of whom are experts in their fields: 

  • Speech and Language Pathologists
  • Social Workers
  • Psychologists
  • Developmental Adaptive Physical Education (DAPE) Teachers
  • Work Experience Coordinators
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Physical Therapist

In addition, Special Education offers support services in coordination with: 

  • Counselors and Nurses (K-12)
  • Early Childhood Special Education
  • Robbinsdale Transition Center (ages 18-21)
  • Homebound Instruction
  • Special Transportation
