Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Branch of The International Dyslexia Association (IDA-RMB)

The International Dyslexia Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals living with dyslexia, language and literacy challenges, their families and the communities that support them. The Rocky Mountain Branch provides local conferences, workshops and resources to educate and increase public awareness of dyslexia, a learning difference that affects up to 20% of the U.S. population. Through two annual conferences, numerous trainings and simulations, a yearly AT grant for schools and more, we hope to make a difference!

IDA TeamQuest – Let’s Lead the ZYX Challenge!

In the ZYX Challenge, brave participants are asked to recite the alphabet in reverse in under 45 seconds. Although individuals with dyslexia do not read or see words backwards, the effort required to read and write can often be just as, or more, challenging.

Board members of our IDA Rocky Mountain Branch took the challenge too. We had a great time and many laughs trying, and trying, and trying again. Needless to say, in the end, it was a group effort! Now, we challenge our readers to help make the Rocky Mountain region the number one ZYX challengers in the country.
