Pete and Pam WrightIt's time for our annual progress report - and a big thank you from the Wrightslaw staff.

We appreciate your input, encouragement, and support during the past year.

As we reflect on our annual report, we feel deeply grateful. We want to thank you for making 2019 another successful year.

By working together, we are making a difference for 6.5 million children with disabilities and their families.

Many thanks!

Pam & Pete Wright

2019 Progress Report


This year's progress report is different. Due to a computer glitch in our analytics for one quarter, we won't make our usual yearly comparison.

From available statistics, we can tell you that visits to Wrightslaw.com continue to climb - especially in the fall when school begins.

In 2019, during September and October, 1,540,965 people visited Wrightslaw - an increase in 500,000 visits from 2018.
