It is the mission of the IDALA to raise awareness and understanding of dyslexia, to promote effective intervention practices, and to support individuals with dyslexia, their families, and professionals in the field.  Our goal is to empower individuals with dyslexia to reach their potential as creative and contributing members of the community.



The Los Angeles County Branch of the International Dyslexia Association is comprised of professionals, parents, and adults with dyslexia interested in expanding public awareness of the nature of dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities and providing accurate information about effective treatment and remediation. We accomplish this through our workshops, annual conference, support groups, dyslexia simulations, and our scholarship fund.
