WSEMS has a roster of professionally trained neutrals who have been trained in both the IEP facilitation and the mediation processes.
Each mediator/facilitator has completed a five-day training on special education mediation and IEP facilitation. Roster members also attend a one-day of training each year that combines training in facilitation and mediation.
Each of our neutrals is listed on our website under Mediators/Facilitators. We encourage you to read their bios, view their videos, and select the facilitator who best fits your needs.
Intake Coordinator and System Administrator Jane Burns works with the parties to agree on a facilitator. Parties can make suggestions directly to each other or to Burns to share with the other party. In addition, Burns can offer suggestions of facilitators for the parties to consider.
