The Wrightslaw Story: Pete and Pam Wright, Founders of Wrightslaw.com


In April 2020, we celebrated our 22nd year of providing accurate, reliable information about special education law and advocacy.

Wrightslaw actually began on November 9, 1993, when the U.S. Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision for Pete's client, Shannon Carter in Florence County v. Shannon Carter To learn more about Pete and Shannon's case, read Three Generations at the Supreme Court and The Untold Story.


Pete and Pam Wright

Pete Wright is an attorney who represents children with special educational needs. Pete struggled with learning disabilities, including dyslexia, dysgraphia and ADHD. His determination to help children grew out of his own educational experiences.

Pam Wright is a psychotherapist who has worked with children and families since the 1970’s. Her training and experience in clinical psychology and clinical social work give her a unique perspective on parent-child-school dynamics, problems, and solutions.
