"Wonderful news! This is the book I have been waiting for! Thanks for your dedication to our children! This will be an awesome resource for justice and equity in our communities! Congratulations on another tremendous resource for parents and their attorneys and advocates!"

"So much great information I can not even begin to tell you. So many important points related to my child's situation. I honestly don't know how parents with children with special needs and their attorneys can operate without this book!

Also it is my understanding the book gets updated every year with new cases. I can't wait to see what cases in the next book I can cross reference for next year. Thank you Pete Wright for sharing your wealth of information in these books!"

Pete says, "Exceptions to the rule cause a body of law to change and grow! Unique facts may compel judges to write a decision contrary to current case law."

Read the facts in the cases for yourself in Wrightslaw: Special Education Legal Developments and Cases 2019.
