"Thank you for the Redding, CA workshop. I came down from Oregon and it was well worth it! I liked Peter's quick & directive teaching style. I felt he was truly in it to give us all the best and most pertinent information and more importantly tools that he has collected in his career. Thank you! I feel so much more prepared to go into my first IEP meeting!!!!!" Liz, parent (Facebook)
"I want to thank you for the incredible two day Boot Camp in West Virginia last week. I am a parent of a 12 year old and I wish I had been to one of these sooner. I wasn't sure if I could afford the time off to attend with my wife and I am so happy I did. Not only will I be a better advocate for my son, but as a sales professional. I really enjoyed your presentation and learned a few new ideas to make my presentations better. I will make sure that I tell every parent of a special needs child, I know what a great training program you put on." - Bucky - West Virginia Attendee
"I thank you! I have been blessed to attend three of your "boot camps" and always learn from your web site. Than you so very much!" - Joan C from Southwick, MA
"Thank you! This website and newsletters are a life saver! This is a wonderful resource and I recommend it to everyone I know who has a special needs child or a child with an IEP. Your seminars are so empowering. The newsletter last month with Aimee Gilman was priceless! Ms. Gillman had me laughing so hard I was crying! Thank you again for providing this excellent resource!" - Arlene S from FL
"Thank you for sharing so much incredible information, and for sharing yourselves. I enjoyed your complimentary styles of getting information to your audience. You truly seem to be a Ying and Yang combo." - Barb from CT
"The Wrightslaw Special Education Law Seminar in Michigan was a tremendously rewarding experience and will forever change our practice." - Bryan I. Eder, Esq., Chudnof & Eder, PLC
"Your boot camp was the most useful CLE I've ever attended. CLEs are notoriously boring and unpleasant. Your program was neither and I learned a lot, even as an experienced practitioner in the field." - Rob Mead, KU Wheat Law Library
"I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation. Your delivery was so engaging that I lost all track of time. You gave me a great boost. Thank you for an enlightening and stimulating presentation!" - Marie from FL
"THANK-YOU so much for the opportunity to learn such invaluable information this past weekend. It was the BEST!"
"As a high school counselor, I am often not 'in the loop' as I need to be so this information was particularly valuable to me. When I came back, I started to review records and translate data into percentiles -- which made things very, very clear to me. Thanks so much!"
"I recently attended your Bootcamp. Thank you a million times over for giving me information that I am now utilizing in child study meetings that I attend as an advocate."
