October is Dyslexia Awareness Month! The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) home office and branches and global partners provide an array of conferences, workshops, webinars, and information sessions to inform and engage parents, families, educators and the general public.

Each year IDA selects a youth with dyslexia who is a worthy role model for others, refuses to be limited by the challenges of learning differences, strives for excellence, and continues to enrich the lives of the communities in which they live through service. IDA is proud to announce that Will Marsh is the 2015 Remy Johnston Certificate of Merit recipient.

Will is a 19-year-old college sophomore from Rahway, New Jersey, currently attending Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is the founder of the Spotlight on Dyslexia Conference, now a national virtual conference on dyslexia for parents by Learning Ally. He is a political science major with a minor in educational studies. His ultimate career goal is to become an educational advocate for students with special needs. Using his experiences and the stories he’s heard of other struggling students, he has made it his life’s mission to do what he can to help those with developmental, neurological, and learning challenges to better navigate our educational system for a successful outcome.
