Early Reviews

". . . The book is clearly written so that it is understood by readers who are unfamiliar with lawyer-talk. Sample letters are included of parents writing to schools and to attorneys. . . . These authors have again written a book that is important for all of us involved with children and their families of varying kinds of special needs." Perspectives, International Dyslexia Association

“Easy to read, incredibly informative – a ‘must read’ for all parents in America.”
— Dr. Elaine Holden, The Reading Foundation

“Does an amazing job of making this law understandable and accessible to lay folk, like me.” — Sandra Rief, master teacher and author of How to Reach and Teach ADD/ADHD Children

“You did a Herculean job of analyzing the No Child Left Behind Act . . . that will pay dividends for parents and advocates.” — Torin Togut, Esq.

Special Features

When we designed Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind, we added special features to make the book easier to use.

* The Book Stays Open!

One of the irritations of life is doing research using a book that will not stay open. Some books close s-l-o-w-l-y. Others snap shut. To keep these books open, you have to put weights on both sides. We had Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind specially-bound so when you open it, it lays flat!

* Room for Your Notes

When you use a legal reference book, you need room for your notes. We designed Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind with more "white space" so you have room for your notes.

* A Strong, Sturdy Book

You have heard the saying, "You can't judge a book by its cover." Maybe you can. The cover of Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind is laminated and made of extra-heavy stock. The book is strong and sturdy.
