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 consists 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, 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.
