International Dyslexia Association (IDA) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1949 to continue the pioneering work of Samuel T. Orton, MD, in the study and treatment of dyslexia. There are branches throughout the country to assist local regions with their needs.
The Rocky Mountain Branch of the IDA, was founded in 1986, and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, scientific and educational organization dedicated to the study and treatment of dyslexia, as well as other related language-based learning differences. Through our seminars, conferences, and workshops, this branch focuses on standards and practices for service providers, in addition to advocacy, family support, referral services, and community resources. Membership dues, private donations, and other development and training efforts fund the Rocky Mountain Branch. IDA receives no government funding.
