More than 10 million people in the U.S. come to Understood.org each year to access our expert-vetted resources and to build confidence in themselves and others.
One of the most impactful solutions we launched in the last year was Wunder, the first community app for parents of kids with learning and thinking differences, like ADHD and dyslexia. A safe space where parents can connect, ask questions, and get expert support — all for free. Another is Take N.O.T.E., a simple step-by-step tool that helps families and teachers identify ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning and thinking differences in children, and guides them on next steps. Since its launch, Take N.O.T.E. has reached 24 million parents, 3.2 million educators, and 278,000 pediatricians, nurses, and other health care professionals in the U.S.
The more engaged people are with resources like Wunder and Take N.O.T.E., the more assured they feel. For example, 41% of parents who accessed Understood.org five or more times in the last six months reported feeling confident after engaging with us, versus 22% of parents who engaged one-to-two times in the last six months.
Our free community app enables parents and caregivers to share information and access resources and tips in an inclusive environment, while getting immediate support from a team of leading experts.

“We had to pivot from an IEP to a 504 for our son. It was nerve-wracking. We needed trusted information on the fly, so I went straight to Wunder. Having that information at our fingertips helps us to stay calm through the process. Our son is taking honors science now that he has a 504.”
