I am pleased to announce another stop on the 2011 Jim Gerl Special Education Law Tour. I was recently informed that I will have the honor of being among the faculty for Showcasing Exemplary Practices: The Fifth National Symposium on Dispute Resolution in Special Education, convening October 26-28, 2010 in Eugene, Oregon. The Symposium is sponsored by CADRE, the National Center on Dispute Resolution in Special Education.
CADRE is the OSEP funded technical assistance agency for dispute resolution in special education. They do a great job. It is a place where I often go for help, and the folks who work there always come through for me. The CADRE website, which has a link on the lefthand side of this blog, contains a wealth of resources for mediators, hearing officers, state complaint investigators, IEP facilitators, due process and dispute resolution coordinators, and others involved in special education disputes. The website is very useful; check it out.
But CADRE's conferences are the best experience possible for people who deal with special ed disputes. The keynote speakers are world class mediators. The workshops at the professional Development Institute during the conference teach usable skills. This is one conference you shouldn't miss.
As always, I'd love to meet readers of this blog. If you'll be at the conference, or if you're in Eugene then, please say hello. And thanks for reading.
