About the Webinar: CADRE’s Parent Dispute Resolution Showcase is the result of feedback from parent leaders on resources that would be most helpful to parent center staff, family members, parents and professionals as they prepare to participate in the full range of dispute resolution processes and practices. This easily searchable collection of resources contains a variety of items from policy and guidance documents to preparation materials, and from brochures and factsheets to website links containing webinars and videos. These materials address the expanding continuum of dispute resolution process and practices from early prevention approaches such as stakeholder training through collaborative processes such as mediation and IEP facilitation. The Showcase also includes items related to IDEA procedures such as Written State Complaints and Due Process Hearings. This webinar helped users to understand how the nearly 200 individual items contained in the Showcase are organized and different ways of accessing them.
