Mission: IDA-FL will be the state leader in the awareness and dissemination of current knowledge, research, and resources regarding dyslexia and related language-based learning disabilities.

Dyslexia is a language-based specific learning disability, that is neurobiological in origin. It affects the phonological component of language. Characteristics include difficulties with accurate and fluent word recognition, spelling, and decoding abilities. Students with dyslexia require Structured Literacy instruction, based on the Science of Reading. Click on What is Dyslexia above for a complete definition and more information.
