Webinar: Understanding Special Education Mediation and What to Expect
Mediation is a voluntary private meeting where you and the school try to reach an agreement regarding an issue, with the help of a neutral third party called a mediator. The mediator has professional training and isn't on either side. In this presentation, we will discuss the steps of mediation and what to expect in the process.
