There is considerable variability from state to state in relation to how dispute resolution processes are made available and the state regulations associated with them. Parents and family members are strongly encouraged to contact a parent center in their state for more information.

These centers provide training, information and other vital assistance to families of children with all disabilities ages birth to 26 years and the professionals who work with them.
