Part C Dispute Resolution: Maintaining A Capable System That Is Rarely Used

Joicey Hurth, Linda Goodman, Marshall Peter, Amy Whitehorne

The following was presented July 30, 2012 at the IDEA Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. Joining CADRE staff Marshall Peter and Amy Whitehorne were Joicey Hurth, Consultant/TA Specialist, National Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (NECTAC) and Northeast Regional Resource Center (NERRC), and Linda Goodman, Director, Connecticut Birth to Three System, Department of Developmental Services.

Session Summary: States are required to maintain a Part C dispute resolution system capable of administering procedures related to mediations, State complaints, and due process hearings. In this session, presenters discussed key elements of effective dispute resolution systems and the challenges of maintaining such a system under Part C, where dispute resolution activity is infrequent. Several successful State models and a free resource library were featured.
