Join the Arizona IDA
for their Inaugural Dyslexia Dash!
Every teacher should be trained in the principles of Structured Literacy, and every child deserves the opportunity to read!
Everyone is welcome! Walk or run with us at Freestone Park on February 12th!
The goal of this event is to grow awareness and support to our community members who are affected by dyslexia and those that support them. With each step, you're helping to get teachers trained and students reading!
Until Everyone Can Read!
