Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an informal process of settling concerns and/or disagreements related to the provision of special education services to students with special needs. The ADR process encourages all parties to collaboratively problem-solve to reach a mutually beneficial resolution without litigation.

The Riverside County SELPA offers the following options for resolution:

  • Facilitation of Collaborative IEPs
  • Utilization of an Intake Coordinator to work with each LEA to resolve the concern/disagreement
  • Facilitation of a Resolution Session
