About Us

We do a lot to improve life for communities in need!

The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) was founded in 1949 in memory of Dr. Samuel T. Orton, a distinguished neurologist who performed pioneering work in identifying and treating dyslexia.  The IDA is the oldest organization regarding learning disabilities in the nation.

Formed in 1984, the Arizona Branch of the IDA was organized to share the dedication of its members to educate the public about the specific learning disability, Dyslexia.  It is a very active non-profit organization with diverse membership.  Our state branch provides up-to-date information regarding dyslexia and literacy research, local service providers, training opportunities, and other events through updating this website, posting on Facebook, and using Constant Contact outreach.
