International Dyslexia Association

The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) home office and branches are passionately committed to providing information and support to every individual strugg...ling with dyslexia and related learning differences. IDA branches meet their local communities at their point of need by supporting appropriate reading instruction using effective, evidence-based assessment and interventions. Unfortunately, the devastation caused by recent hurricanes is disrupting these efforts, and we need your help to raise funds over the next few weeks to support the local IDA branch areas of greater Houston, Louisiana, and Florida (which also serves Puerto Rico) during this difficult time.
