Great news! Today won a Webby Award for the Best Family/Parenting Site of 2015!

The New York Times has called the Webbys “the Internet’s highest honor.” This year the Webbys received nearly 13,000 entries from over 60 countries. We are so excited to win this year’s award. And we are thrilled to be joining past winners in this category, including, Nick Jr. Playtime and BabyCenter.

This award will help raise awareness of the 1 in 5 children who are struggling with learning and attention issues. It will help Understood reach more parents. And as more parents hear about this free nonprofit resource, fewer parents will feel alone or unsure about what they can do to help.

That’s why the most important thing we want to do today is to thank you. Thank you for being with us from the beginning. Since Understood launched in October, you’ve helped us grow an incredibly vibrant, supportive community where parents feel free to ask questions and trade stories and tips.

Every comment you’ve posted. Every article you’ve shared. Every infographic you’ve pinned. Every question you’ve asked during daily chats with our experts. Everything you’ve done to spread the word about Understood has amplified our reach and underscored our reason for being. Our goal is to support and empower parents to propel their children from simply coping to truly thriving. And millions of you are helping us reach millions more.

From everyone on the Understood team, we want to say a heartfelt thanks for your support. Together we’re doing something really powerful and life-changing. And we’re just getting started!
