We are happy you found IDA of Northern Ohio (NOBIDA).

We are a branch of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA), the premier non-profit literacy organization dedicated to the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based, quantitative research in literacy instruction.

Literacy instruction is influenced by qualitative and quantitative research. Learn which studies have helped influence informed decisions on literacy instruction.

Welcome, from the President

NOBIDA is made up of an all volunteer Board of Directors and Advisory Council including educators, researchers, parents, and advocates.

We are a community of individuals, a network not a physical location, offering hope, education, and the opportunity for personal success to people with dyslexia and those that interact with them in Northeastern Ohio.  

Our offerings include workshops for educators and parents, an annual symposium event, dyslexia simulations, and many other resources.

Enthusiastic about our mission, we pledge to work tirelessly until everyone can read.

Reach out today and we will help you find the resources you need. 

Dyslexia Awareness Month is October and we have many ways to show support. 

Our 34th Annual Symposium is Open for Registration!

Join Us, October 20-21, 2022: Walsh University, North Canton, OH as we welcome three nationally recognized speakers to our event! 

Dr. Tracy White-Weeden, Dr. Elsa Cardenas Hagan, Kareem Weaver, and Dr. Rebecca Tolson will present methods for achieving equity for all literacy students.

At Rise Up!, we invite registrants to support our partner, Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank.
This October, NOBIDA is also joining Georgia IDA’s popular Dyslexia Dash event as a virtual participant. Our team, NOBIDA Runs is seeking more runners, walkers, and joggers to help fund our goal! 

Find all OH HB 436 (Dyslexia screeners and guidebook) updates here.

What does OH HB 436 mean for teachers, administrators, parents, and advocates?

In order to understand the implementation and optimism around HB 436, we encourage you to learn about Structured Literacy Curricula. 

If you have further questions about Structured Literacy and NOBIDA’s resources, please reach out.

Thank you,

Andrea Thomas, M.Ed., C.A.L.T.

NOBIDA Board President
