Description

Dyslexia Dash 2019 is set for October 19, 2019 at Perimeter Mall.  For information about Sponsorship, please click here.

Without the support of our participants, sponsors, and volunteers, these exciting events would not be possible.

Together we can demystify reading difficulties, spread knowledge, and encourage change.

The funds raised from the Dyslexia Dash are set aside to provide low-cost teacher trainings, seminars, support groups, and referral and advocacy services.

We are a part of the International Dyslexia Association, which with over 13,000 members, is the oldest organization of its kind in the United States serving individuals with dyslexia, their families, and professionals in the field.

The International Dyslexia Association Georgia is a non-profit, scientific, and educational organization formed to increase public awareness of dyslexia.  We are a resource and support system for parents, individuals with dyslexia and educators.  For more information see our website at ga.dyslexiaida.org.
