Event Description

One in five struggle with literacy! This event was created to raise dyslexia awareness and build a community for our dyslexic families and the teachers that serve them! Join us for our 2nd Annual 1in5k Dyslexia Dash!

IDA Arizona strongly believes that every teacher should be trained in the principles of Structured Literacy and that every student deserves the opportunity to read!

Structured Literacy is beneficial for all students but crucial to those with dyslexia! Join us on September 30th; with each step, you are helping to get teachers trained and students reading!

Groups of 30 or more are eligible for our Ambassador Scholarship Opportunity! For more information and to register as an Ambassador, please contact Meagan at meagan.lougee@arizonaida.org
