Changes to autism program prompt parent concerns


LYNNHURST — Parents of students with autism are urging Minneapolis Public Schools to reconsider changes to the district’s autism program slated for next fall.

The district’s plan affects just three schools where some, but not all, special autism classrooms will close, as well as a small group of incoming kindergarteners diagnosed with autism. Some of those kindergarteners — just fewer than half of the group of 49 — will attend schools that aren’t a part of the district’s citywide autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, program.
