Champion of Early Intervention and TeamQuest Visits Home Office

The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) recently had the honor and privilege of hosting the youngest and most spirited TeamQuest Champion, Daniel Douglas, when he and his family visited the IDA home office on December 28th. The Douglas family was in Maryland visiting relatives for the holidays.

Daniel represents the many elementary school children with dyslexia who are learning to read through decoding techniques supported by IDA certified tutors and structured literacy. IDA members were first introduced to this bright and well-spoken third grader at IDA’s annual conference in Orlando earlier this year when Daniel, with the help of mother, Regina, spoke about early diagnosis and intervention to an audience of 700 attendees at the conference kick-off. Daniel, who is currently reading on grade level, works with Milaura Spelman Reading Specialist & Speech/Language Pathologist and Florida IDA member. 

Join us in 2017, as we strive with the help of Daniel, his family, and so many others to reach our Destiny…to create a future for all individuals who struggle with dyslexia and other related reading differences so that they may have richer, more robust lives and access to the tools and resources they need.
