CADRE Parent Resource Showcase

The CADRE has developed a Parent Resource Showcase. The Center for Appropriate Dispute Resolution in Special Education (CADRE) works to increase the nation's capacity to effectively resolve special education disputes, reducing the use of expensive adversarial processes. CADRE works with state and local education and early intervention systems, parent centers, families and educators to improve programs and results for children with disabilities. The Resource Showcase captures critical aspects of state dispute resolution systems and includes a collection of resources relating to the continuum of DR processes and practices.

This Showcase is an easily searchable collection of resources related to special education dispute resolution that are of value to parents and the centers who serve them. The resources found here are also beneficial to educators and professionals who work with family members. To access this Showcase go to: http://www.directionservice.org/cadre/parent/matrixCMK.cfm
