IDA infographics help make complex information easy to digest, remember, and share and are made for a wide audience—both those individuals new to dyslexia and related literacy/learning issues and the experts. Please share our infographics and our fact sheets to raise awareness about dyslexia and to help support the policy and practice changes needed to bring effective instruction (particularly in reading) to every child with dyslexia in every classroom across the nation.

The infographic below (based on a fact sheet by John Alexander) outlines what to be wary of and the questions to ask when making decisions about programs for dyslexia and other reading difficulties.
