The Wisconsin Special Education Mediation System helps parents and schools work together to resolve disputes about special education.
We do not provide legal advice or advocacy for either parents or districts, and we do not mediate 504 plan disputes.

Do I need a lawyer to participate in mediation?

No. About two-thirds of the cases that go through the mediation process do not have lawyers involved in them. Of those cases, most settle the issues in dispute. If you choose to be represented by a lawyer in the mediation process, you are responsible for the lawyer’s fees.
