What People Are Saying About Wrightslaw Programs
We get excited and energized at Wrightslaw special education law and advocacy programs and you will too.
I thoroughly enjoyed your conference in Texas. The information I learned was invaluable! My ability to interpret test scores has shed new light on my child's education and my work as an advocate. You have given me the confidence and incentive to be a more passionate advocate and I sincerely thank you! - from JR.
I attended your conference in New Britain, CT and just still cannot get over the exceptional content and support you provided. Your personal story is truly an inspiration! Thank you so much. I know that you will continue to make a difference in my daughter's life, as well as countless others you work with. - from LW.
"Our son and daughter-in-law attended your seminar in Monterey, CA this past March. They found it very informative and two of your comments helped make the first IEP meeting last week a success. The Costco food plates were a definite hit and started the meeting off in a friendly atmosphere. The second thing of note was the use of charts to portray his progress to date. The school system staff found those informative and easy to understand.Wrightslaw has been and will continue to be an invaluable asset" - Thankful Grandparents in Virginia
