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 will differ based upon the child’s age. ODR offers IEP facilitation, Resolution Meeting Facilitation, Mediation, and Due Process Hearings for Preschoolers who are receiving Early Intervention.

The Departments of Public Welfare and Education, Office of Child Development and Early Learning 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.
