Reimbursement Scholarships

Thanks to successful fundraising efforts, IDA Arizona can offer reimbursement for completing courses and programs that increase Arizonan educators’ knowledge about dyslexia and the Science of Reading. 

There are many courses eligible for reimbursement (see below), but we also want to encourage you to apply for dyslexia conferences (i.e., IDA’s National Conference, Dyslexia Training Institute’s Virtual Conference, etc.) or other trainings, workshops, and seminars related to the field of dyslexia and/or structured literacy in education. 

Arizona residents are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Applications for this scholarship are on a first-come, first-served basis. As of November 1st, 2022, the maximum award is $400 member/$200 non-members per calendar year. 

If approved, a member of the Scholarship Committee will issue an approval email for the reimbursement. To receive reimbursement, awardees must submit proof of purchase and course completion within 45 days of the event’s end. Reimbursement will only be issued for registration fees/tuition. IDA Arizona will not reimburse meals, travel, parking, or incidentals related to the conference or training. This scholarship is awarded as a reimbursement only

“The AZ IDA reimbursement scholarship is an incredible benefit of membership. I was able to virtually attend the 2019 IDA conference, which was full of powerful information. The scholarship process is clearly described, and reimbursement is timely.” -L Dunn


“Thank you for processing the paperwork so quickly!  I received the reimbursement check yesterday, and I’m so grateful for IDA’s support. The Antioch class, Intro to Dyslexia, was so informative and empowering. I really feel like I learned so much about research, advocacy and ways to better support students and families.” -H Radtke


Independent Teacher Training Programs Accredited by IDA

The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) has an accreditation program that rigorously reviews educator preparation programs based on an accreditation model that is uniquely aligned with IDA’s Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading (KPS). Alignment with the KPS provides programs with a comprehensive standards-based reading preparation framework to guide the development of their curriculum. Programs that meet these standards are awarded IDA Accreditation.

Programs awarded AccreditationPlus have received IDA accreditation and also produce educators who have engaged in intensive supervised practicum experiences that were sufficiently designed and staffed to promote applied mastery of the principles and practices of structured literacy in the service of preventing reading failure and remediating off-track readers with profiles characteristic of dyslexia.
