"So much great information I can not even begin to tell you. I've highlighted so many important points I can use for my child's situation that have helped me, that I honestly don't know how parents with children with special needs can operate without this book!

Also it is my understanding the book gets updated every year on new cases. I can't wait to see what cases in the next book I can cross reference for next year. I am so grateful for Pete Wright sharing his wealth of information in these books!"
