As the President of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) Arizona Branch, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you and to thank you for visiting our website.  

IDA Arizona is a nonprofit organization that strives to create a supportive community where individuals with dyslexia, their families, educators, and professionals can come together to learn, access resources, and share their experiences. We are dedicated to raising awareness about dyslexia and research-based interventions and advocating for structured literacy in all K-5 classrooms across Arizona.

We encourage you to explore our website, take advantage of the resources available, and reach out if you have any questions. Together we can make a difference and improve literacy outcomes in Arizona!
