Dyslexia Connection is a monthly e-newsletter provided for the parent members of the International Dyslexia Association. We strive to make sure parents are educated about every aspect of dyslexia from assessment to intervention to school life to social interactions.
What are the qualities of an ideal article?
In everything we publish, we seek to help parents understand some aspect of their child’s learning disability. We want this newsletter to be filled with those ah-ha moments to let parents know they aren’t alone.
Our tone is down-to-earth and easy to understand. We don’t use technical terms without explaining what those words mean. We want to arm parents with information.
We also seek success stories. Are you an adult with dyslexia who has found success? Has your child overcome something that may inspire other parents? Share your successes with us!
Types of published material
We are looking for:
- Professional articles from dyslexia specialists in all fields as long as the tone and vocabulary is both appropriate for and helpful to parents.
- Parent articles about the struggles you or your child has overcome and how that happened.
- Adult articles about personal struggles with dyslexia and how you overcame those struggles.
What are we not publishing?
We do not publish fiction, individual reviews on specific therapies or methods, book or product reviews.
