Want to learn facilitative skills?

Improving IEP Teams: Skills for Resolving Conflict training focuses on improving facilitative skills and creating more effective IEP meetings.

Improving IEP Teams: Skills for Resolving Conflict 

All IEP team members can benefit from learning dynamic facilitative skills to move beyond conflict. Because parents and educators may not share identical perceptions of the child or goals for the student, conflict may arise. Facilitative skills are helpful every day, at every meeting, and before disagreements become disputes.

This workshop is for any IEP team member interested in improving the IEP team process, including special education directors and coordinators, parents, special education teachers, general education teachers, school psychologists, school social workers, and other related service providers.

Skills and knowledge taught in the six-hour Improving IEP Teams workshop include:

  • Knowing key IDEA terminology
  • Planning agendas for productive meetings and to ensure meaningful participation
  • Understanding how and why conflict naturally occurs in the IEP process
  • Developing strategic questioning and active listening techniques to build relationships
  • Clarifying positions versus interests to develop improved outcomes for students
