Since 2005, Idaho has offered IEP facilitation. The program has expanded into facilitation of all IDEA-related meetings {e.g., eligibility, manifestation determination meetings, resolution sessions), and represents 83% of all dispute resolution activity, with a trending decline in adversarial DR options. Participants will learn: philosophical guidelines for Idaho's program; marketing and networking strategies used to build the program; care and feeding of contracted facilitators; data tracking; cost comparative analysis; and Idaho's program and contractor evaluation processes. There will be plenty of time for discussion with members of Idaho's DR facilitation team.
