The Office for Dispute Resolution (ODR) coordinates and manages Pennsylvania’s special education mediation and due process systems regardless of the age of the child. However, the procedures may differ based upon the child’s age. ODR offers IEP/IFSP facilitation, Resolution Meeting Facilitation, Mediation, and Due Process Hearings for Infants-Toddlers and Preschool age children who are receiving Early Intervention.
The Departments of Human Services and Education are responsible for Pennsylvania’s Early Intervention Program for eligible infants and toddlers. Information regarding mediation and due process hearings for infants and toddlers is available from both Departments.
To find your local Early Intervention program, contact CONNECT at 800-692-7288.
