Come experience how a student written advocacy plan can unlock the greatness in the 1-in-5 who learn differently. This event is for parents, teachers and students to support those who have learning disabilities such as dyslexia and ADHD. Hear from the organization Eye To Eye about their mentor movement and student advocacy plan. IDA Central Ohio members can attend at no cost. The fee for non-members is $5 at the door and individuals 18 and under can attend free.   Eyetoeyenational.org

Is your child or student struggling in school? Do they know how to advocate for themselves? The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) Central Ohio is here to help you. The purpose of IDA Central Ohio is to pursue and provide the most comprehensive range of information and services that address dyslexia and related difficulties in learning to read and write—all in a way that creates hope, possibility and partnership.


“RU One in Five?” is an upcoming workshop that will focus on advocating through empowerment with the help of the organization Eye To Eye. At this special event, IDA Central Ohio and an Eye To Eye diplomat will show how to make your own advocacy plan that you or your student can share at school. Eye To Eye is the only organization run by and for the 1-in-5 people with learning disabilities such as dyslexia and ADHD.


An advocacy plan is a powerful document that can inspire confidence and cooperation among those involved in the process of learning and teaching differently. Brooke, a high school student who has dyslexia/ADHD, presented her first Eye To Eye advocacy plan in seventh grade during her Individual Education Plan meeting. Brooke left the meeting with a sense of pride in herself and support from her education team. She continues to update and present her advocacy plan yearly.
