  • Build agreement and gain consensus.
  • Manage challenging meeting dynamics.

At the conclusion of this training, you will leave with materials that can be modified to enhance your team's productivity.

The trainers have extensive knowledge in special education and dispute resolution.  This training is based on reserach, draws on the trainer's expertise, practice and lessons learned as observers and facilitators in hundreds of IEP meetings, and includes tips that have a proven track record.

Note: Legal issues and system design are not addressed in this training.
