From the International Dyslexia Association:
In an effort to help as many people with dyslexia and other learning disabilities as possible, IDA collaborates with like-minded organizations. IDA does not endorse or recognize organizations but instead, partners with organizations to highlight services that align with IDA’s purpose to pursue and provide the most comprehensive range of information and services that address the full scope of dyslexia and related difficulties in learning to read and write. . . In a way that creates hope, possibility, and partnership.
