The International Dyslexia Association Georgia Branch is here to serve the needs of families, educators, and professionals concerned with struggling readers. IDA Georgia is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals living with dyslexia, a learning difference that affects up to 20% of the U.S. population, as well as their families and the communities that support them. Our goal is to provide essential research-based information about assessment, diagnosis, resources, and appropriate educational intervention. We offer information and referral, community outreach events, professional education conferences, and teacher training opportunities to increase public awareness and remediation of dyslexia.
Whether you are dyslexic, a parent, a professional, or someone who is interested in learning more and being a part of the growing demand for change, we hope you will find inspiration and guidance here. We welcome you to contact us for additional information – until everyone can read!
