Public Awareness and Educational Outreach

HIDA's Public Awareness and Educational Outreach program educates the community about dyslexia and the strategies, technology, and accommodations available to assist individuals with dyslexia. Resources are diseminated through technology (webinars, YouTube Channel, website, Facebook page), publications, and phone and email support with our executive director and volunteers. HIDA also collaborates with other community agencies to offer specific outreach, presentations and workshops (currently only offered in virtual format due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions). HIDA advocates for increased public awareness of dyslexia so that students can be identified earlier as having a learning difference and receive crucial, specialized teaching and other support services and strategies necessary for attaining proficient literacy skills, optimal social and emotional health, and lifelong success.

Students

Lack of knowledge and understanding of dyslexia plus ineffective instruction can lead to student, teacher and parent frustration, as well as stagnation of literacy skills. HIDA's Teacher and Tutor Training Program objective is to provide education, training and support to teachers and tutors who work with students with dyslexia and other struggling readers.

HIDA's program provides:
a) ½-full day workshops with local and national speakers on educational interventions to help struggling readers: topics have included technology innovations in the classroom, writing development, and math strategies (an area of difficulty for many struggling readers) [currently on pause due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions]
b) 1-2 hour live webinars: recorded webinars are posted at HIDA's website and YouTube Channel; topics have focused on strategies to help struggling readers with writing, using technology for greater literacy development, and the impact of bilingualism on dyslexia
