Celebrating 30!


Thirty years ago, the first Texas Dyslexia Laws were enacted. In response to these new laws, a dedicated, passionate group of parents and educators formed the Austin area branch of the International Dyslexia Association. Their goal was to inform and influence parents and schools to adopt Orton-Gillingham based teacher training and instructional programs.

This year, IDA Austin celebrates 30 years of supporting this vision. We continue in our mission to promote reading excellence through effective structured literacy training for teachers and to improve dyslexia awareness and education for parents and educators.

While we are actively working with parents, teachers, and therapists to fulfill this mission, we need your help to make our efforts go even further. If you are able to give, we would appreciate your donation to help us reach our goal: Until Everyone Can Read!
