International Dyslexia Association
I am honored and privileged to be the president of the AZ Branch of the International Dyslexia Association. As a board we will continue to strive forward in our efforts to increase awareness and education of what dyslexia is and how it impacts people. We plan to create a foundation for parents, teachers and schools with effective programs and strategies to support individuals with dyslexia. I look forward to working with our outstanding board members in these efforts.
