IDA-FL Branch Vision and Mission

Vision: ALL students in Florida will receive Structured Literacy instruction, provided by effective teachers, who understand the Science of Reading.

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. We will provide guidance, based on the Science of Reading, that informs appropriate assessment, Structured Literacy instruction, and intervention. This information will be available to all stakeholders, including children and adults with dyslexia, their families, teachers, and related professionals.


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.
