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.

What is mediation?

  • Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party assists people in resolving their disputes.
  • Mediation is facilitated negotiation.
  • Mediation encourages mutual respect, promotes communication, and contributes to a more positive working relationship in the future.
