The Michigan Special Education Mediation Program (MSEMP) is a federally funded project of the Michigan Department of Education—Office of Special Education.
These services are provided at no cost to families and schools.
Facilitation can help the parties involved to develop the best educational program for their circumstances. The Facilitator assists with communication so everybody can focus on resolving issues.
This process aids the parties in resolving a dispute that may arise from IEP implementation. The process is voluntary and confidential. The Mediator fosters cooperative discussion, however nobody will be forced into signing an agreement.
Workshops on conflict resolution and collaborative communication are available to parents, educators, and service providers.
