Below is a  message from our President Heather Caska,  upcoming in-person events, our Arizona Provider’s Directory, information on becoming an IDA member, donating to our Arizona Branch, and our sponsors!

Welcome to The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) Branch of Arizona!

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to serving individuals affected by dyslexia, language and literacy challenges, and their families and communities that support them. Over the past year, our board has celebrated many successes, including Governor Ducey signing SB1572 , a successful Virtual Symposium, our first ever 1in5K Dyslexia Dash, and numerous coffee chats and webinars. Now, we are excited to welcome a NEW SCHOOL YEAR! We are dedicated to bringing structured literacy in every K-3 classroom across Arizona and our board has been busy planning many upcoming events for this school year. To kick off Dyslexia Awareness Month, we hosted a four-block virtual conference on ADHD and Dyslexia and executive functions. We also have several other community chats and events planned.  Whether you are an educator, professional, parent, an individual with dyslexia, or just interested in learning more, we know you will find the knowledge, support, and guidance here.

Your President,
Heather Caska, MS, CCC-SLP
