Welcome to IDA Alabama
IDA Alabama is a state-level organization charged with carrying out the mission and goals of the International Dyslexia Association, and promoting activities related to dyslexia awareness, appropriate reading instruction, testing and tutoring information, and partnering with other organizations concerned with dyslexia in Alabama. IDA Alabama’s primary state-level partner organizations are Decoding Dyslexia of Alabama and Alabama Game Changers. IDA Alabama and IDA work to improve the lives of individuals with dyslexia through education, legislation, and services.
The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) is an international organization that concerns itself with the complex issues of dyslexia.
IDA and its members are the leading resource for individuals with dyslexia, their families, teachers, and educational professionals around the world. As both IDA Alabama and IDA are non-profit organizations dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with dyslexia, we invite you to join our work and become a member of IDA and thus an affiliation with IDA Alabama.
As a member of IDA, you will receive regular information about managing dyslexia through monthly online publications, access to an international network of professionals in the field, discounts on conference fees and publications from our online store, quarterly journals, and affiliation with IDA Alabama, opening a gateway to a learning community of other individuals sharing our mission within your state.
