• Overview

    At Anoka Hennepin, special education evaluations are managed by a team of professionals trained to look in depth at students' strengths and needs. Before jumping into the Evaluation Process, it is important to give your child a chance to succeed through the Intervention Process.
    The mission of the K-21 evaluation team is to:
    • Identify children with disabilities who are in need of special education and related services.
    • Provide timely special education evaluations.
    • Consider the whole child (all areas of development and factors that may impact a child).
    • Strive to view children with a non-biased, culturally sensitive perspective.
    • Meet the requirements of the law.

    If you have concerns with your child's development and your child is in a K-12 program, you are encouraged to do one of the following:
    • Review the Intervention Process.
    • Talk with your child's teacher about your concerns.
    • Talk with a special education teacher at your child's school building about your concerns.
