Ideally, families and schools can solve problems on their own, but that is not always the case. Sometimes the problems seem too complex, or those involved become too emotional to handle the conflict constructively, or the meeting has so many participants involved that it’s difficult to have an effective conversation. You are not alone, and there are resources that can help. Special Education Mediation is a resource that assists parent(s) and school districts to work out their diverse viewpoints through a confidential and non-adversarial process.
