When & Where
International Dyslexia Association - GA Branch
The Georgia Branch of The International Dyslexia Association is a non-profit, scientific and educational organization which was formed to increase public awareness of dyslexia. We are a resource and support system for parents, individuals with dyslexia, and educators.
Many of our members are actively involved in the diagnosis and remediation of dyslexia. Our members are educators, psychologists, physicians, individuals with dyslexia, and parents who have dealt with learning disability issues within local public and private schools.
With its approximate 300 members, the Georgia Branch provides an information and referral hotline, community outreach activities, the Dyslexia Dash 5K Run/Walk, yearly conferences, teacher training workshops, and e-newsletters. The Branch encourages teachers to train in multisensory language instruction.
Membership in the local branch is included in the cost of IDA membership. If you are one of the many people affected by dyslexia or if you have family members or students with dyslexia, we urge you to join the IDA and become an active participant.
