Program Description



Payment Schedule

A portion of the speaker's fee must be prepaid. The first payment of 25% is due when the program is confirmed and the contract is signed.

A second payment of 25% is due four months in advance of the program.

The remaining 50% is due at the end of the program.

Click here to view the standard contract letter which is revised dependent upon speaker, dates, etc.

Flat Rate / All Inclusive Speaker Fee - With all local, state, federal agencies, school districts and the military we use a flat rate for speaker fee, lodging, travel, meals, etc., so that the sole expenses are the speaker and book purchase fee. Dependent upon the location, travel issues, anticipated costs and whether there are one or two speakers, the speaker fee is increased approximately $1,000 to $3,500. We can also the flat rate for any other group if desired.

Click here to view some past contract letters using the flat rate option. As you can see from those other letters, we have some flexibility.


Successful Programs

We are committed to helping you put on a successful program. After details are finalized, we will provide publicity for your event through the Wrightslaw website. We will build a page for your program and will post that page on the Wrightslaw site.

Read Pete's advice about successful programs and go to the "Conference & Marketing" page to see (and listen to a podcast ) how a Detroit organization, in ten weeks from contract to conference, sold out, two weeks in advance, with 500 attendees and another sold out six weeks in advance at 250 attendees. Watch the video about their marketing.

We can send targeted emails to thousands of individuals in your state and neighboring states.

A Note About IDEA 2004

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act was revised in 2004 and is known as IDEA 2004. The federal regulations were revised in August, 2006. Wrightslaw programs provide an overview about disability law and focus on IDEA 2004 and the regs. At the same time, attendees will learn about Section 504 and other federal education laws.

In most of our training programs, we generally use Wrightslaw: Special Education Law, 2nd Edition, and Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy, 2nd Edition.


Programs related to the law include the history of special education law, the law about evaluations, reevaluations, IEPs, and IEP team meetings. Programs also include the procedural requirements in IDEA 2004. Participants will learn about any new developments in No Child Left Behind, any recent Supreme Court decisions and status of any pending U.S. Supreme Court cases and how these decisions are likely to affect you.

Advocacy programs focus on advocacy skills, paper trails, the Letter to a Stranger, negotiation techniques, understanding test data, SMART IEPs, organization of the child's file, the Rule of Adverse Assumptions, the 5 W's+H+E and much more.
