The IDA Examiner, our quarterly e-letter, keeps you abreast of happenings at the International Dyslexia Association and on top of dyslexia and literacy-related news in the field and around the world. In addition to breaking news, recaps, reports, infographics, and timely, thought-provoking articles, we publish regular columns from experts in the field on a range of relevant topics. Our goal is threefold:

  • To arm our spectrum of readers—families, educators, advocates, researchers, and policymakers—with the information needed for effective decision-making and collaborating on behalf of those who struggle to learn to read, particularly those with dyslexia
  • To promote IDA, its mission, and its initiatives
  • To reach beyond IDA’s current membership to recruit new members and enlist others in IDA’s mission

All IDA members and Examiner “subscribers” receive our e-letter free of charge. Click here to read articles—organized by topic—from past issues of the Examiner.
