It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Ohio Valley Branch of the International Dyslexia Association website. We have been in existence since 1978 to advocate for those individuals who are touched by dyslexia, whether child, teen, adult, or family member. We provide Scholarships for teacher training as well as work to educate and inform those in our community who touch the lives of dyslexics. We do this through our two annual conferences, outreach activities, helplines, and by partnering with other organizations.  We encourage you to join us in this mission. Until Everyone Can Read…
