Facilitation is an upstream dispute resolution activity that when available to teams can resolve disputes quickly and prevent the likelihood of a larger more formal procedure taking place. While information presented here focuses on IEP meetings, the materials are relevant to other types of IDEA-related team meetings, as well.

CADRE has provided intensive technical assistance in the form of multistate workgroups in the area of IEP facilitation program design for several years. Whether you are just getting started, or want to improve your facilitation program, CADRE has done the legwork of finding best practices and examples. You will find example forms, guiding documents, suggestions for program design and improvement, voices from the field, and much more!
