What are some benefits of using IEP Facilitation?

The facilitator models effective communication and listening, and works with the IEP Team to identify points on which they agree and disagree. In addition, IEP Team meeting facilitation can:  


  • build and improve relationships among IEP team members, especially when they are having difficulty working well together;
  • encourage parents and professionals to consider new options to address unresolved problems;
  • help resolve disagreements more quickly than other dispute resolution options; and
  • keep decision-making with team members who know the student best.
