American Dyslexia

Welcome to IDA Florida’s new website!   We are thrilled to offer a refreshing set of webpages filled with information about dyslexia and the most respected resources to support learners, parents, and professionals throughout our community.  Launching a new website is like starting a new year in school which is likely to bring up personal memories for all of us. Backpacks and binders are free from rips, stains and scribble, pencils have erasers and shiny pens and markers are bright and actually work!

At IDA Florida we, too, have a fresh start with our board members and membership rejuvenated after a delightful summer, ready to begin anew our push to meet our continuing mission “until everyone can read.”  Please join us in this great quest!  We invite you to peruse our website and its many resources.  We are delighted to be “Powered by G Speech” which can serve as your guide through our written content.

Finally, we want to personally invite each of you to join us at the IDA annual conference in Orlando, Florida on October 26-29, 2016 at the Orlando World Center Marriott AND to our IDA Florida Social on Thursday, October 27, from 8:00-9:30. Located poolside “on the green” of the hotel property, will be our “After Hours – Dessert and Champagne” event where we reconnect with old acquaintances and new friends.  Each ticket serves as a chance in a fabulous raffle!  Additionally, ticket sales for our Branch Social Event go directly to IDA Florida when you register for the conference.  We would love to see you there!

Best Wishes!
