The Craig School Speaker Series

Upcoming Workshop:

Conflict in Special Education: Conflict Resolution, Appropriate Dispute Resolution, and Facilitated IEPs

Description of Workshop:

The Individuals with Disabilities Act strongly emphasizes the importance of an effective family-professional partnership in creating the student’s educational program (IDEA, 2004). The IEP meeting is an opportunity for the team of experts, including parents, teachers, related service providers, and the child (when appropriate), to openly communicate and collaborate. However, there may be times when the participants come to the table with varying perspectives or disagreements. This session presents an overview of how the team can use research-based facilitation techniques to promote communication, prevent conflict, and reconcile differences so that the team can focus on the student's needs and craft a robust and unique program for the child. Participants will leave with tools and techniques they can implement at their next IEP.
