Special Education Mediation
Mediation is cost-effective and efficient, but it offers a variety of other benefits that are important in a special education setting. The process ensures both sides have an opportunity to speak their mind and voice their concerns. Nobody walks away from a special education mediation session in Wisconsin feeling as if they were not heard or as if they did not play a role in the resolution.
As a matter of fact, mediation puts parents and the school system in charge of designing a resolution. This can be especially beneficial because it allows for flexibility and the chance to design a custom solution that suits the needs of each particular student. All of this is accomplished with the guidance and support of a neutral mediator, there to facilitate conversation and move the proceedings forward.
