Exemplary Leadership: How Dispute Resolution Professionals Change Cultures – video and materials

This presentation and these materials were offered at CADRE’s Fifth National Symposium on Dispute Resolution in Special Education during October 2011. Be sure to review CADRE’s Video Resource Center from the Symposium. Support for the Symposium and video development was generously provided by the JAMS Foundation and the Office of Special Education Programs at the U.S. Department of Education.

In this address, Professor LeBaron explores how special education dispute resolution professionals can contribute to educational cultures of inclusion and creativity.


When dispute resolution professionals think of themselves as leaders, they are more aware of their social influence and the impacts of their work not only for individual students but on families, communities and teaching and learning settings.


Imagination, cultural fluency and creativity were explored as resources and competencies for exemplary dispute resolution leaders.
