The resources on Understood.org are protected by copyright and other laws. You’re not allowed to reprint them without permission. This applies to all content on Understood.org, including articles, tips, downloads, graphics, etc.
Below is our reprint policy. It tells you how to get permission.
PURPOSE OF REPRINTING
Understood allows reprinting for a specific purpose. We want to give organizations and professionals access to Understood’s resources so they can help parents and educators support kids with learning and attention issues. We don’t partner with or accept donations from any pharmaceutical company. You should read the reprint policy with this purpose in mind.
REQUESTS FOR REPRINTING
Linking to Resources
You may link directly to Understood’s resources without asking for formal permission. However, we ask that you mention Understood.org when possible.
Printing Hard Copies for a Community or School Group
You may print copies of Understood’s resources to distribute to a community group or at a school without asking for formal permission. There’s no charge. Just click the Print icon on any article for a printer-friendly version.
Reprinting (Hard Copy or Online)
If you want to reprint Understood’s resources on your website or as part of your printed materials, you must ask for formal permission.
To ask for permission, send an email to email@example.com with the subject line “Understood Reprinting Request.” In the email, please provide:
(a) The name, address and contact information for you and your organization
(b) The name of and link to the Understood resource you want to reprint
(c) Where you plan to reprint the resource—for example, on your website’s resource page or as part of a booklet you’re creating
(d) Why you believe reprinting helps kids with learning and attention issues
(e) A statement that neither you, your website nor your organization are sponsored or funded by any pharmaceutical company
You’ll receive a response to your request within five business days.
If you are a non-profit organization, reprinting is generally free. But you must provide proof of your non-profit status with your email request. This can be a government letter or your organization’s certificate of incorporation.
For all other requests, there’s typically a $500 donation per resource. This grants you a one-time, non-exclusive North American right to reprint the resource. Payment must be received prior to reprinting via donation at Understood.org/about/donate.
Please note that there are resources on Understood.org for which Understood has permission to publish, but for which it does not hold copyright. We can’t grant reprint permission for these resources.
