Welcome! 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.

  • 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 who interact with them in Northeastern Ohio.  
  • Our offerings include workshops for educators and parents, an annual symposium, dyslexia simulations, and many other resources.

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