Welcome to IDA Central Ohio

The International Dyslexia Association Central Ohio inspires action to transform education for learners with dyslexia.


We have compiled a large list of training options for Orton-Gillingham/Structured Literacy. Most of them are virtual training. Please contact the organization listed for any questions/times/costs etc. Some of the training or resources are free.
Our Dyslexic Children Film
OUR DYSLEXIC CHILDREN tells the story of how a group of parents in Central Ohio took on
their school district to affect change for their dyslexic children. They formed a partnership with
the district and now work shoulder to shoulder to deliver the nationally recognized early literacy
program they built together. This film was made to offer a roadmap for parents to advocate on behalf of all children. For more information visit:

Kudos to The Southport CoLab and Florida Center for Reading Research for this fantastic infographic tackling common myths about dyslexia and vision. Spoiler Alert—-there’s no evidence that visual problems cause dyslexia, no evidence that treatment for convergence improves decoding or comprehension, and no evidence that visual interventions remediate dyslexia or learning disabilities.

There is a theory about how people read words — one that’s deeply embedded in teaching practices and curriculum materials widely used in elementary school classrooms. Although the idea has been disproved by cognitive scientists, it continues to be included in teacher preparation programs, promoted in professional development sessions, and marketed by publishers.

Cracking the Code of Dyslexia

Researchers who say one in five children they studied was dyslexic have also found there is no link at all between dyslexia and intelligence
