The Southern California Tri-Counties Branch is one of 42 national branches of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA).
In 1999, IDA held a Vision Retreat which consisted of a cross section of IDA board members, branch council members, association management, and other prominent people in the field of dyslexia. The participants, facilitators and staff gave of themselves to create a dynamic new vision and committed to a new purpose for The International Dyslexia Association, which the IDA Board of Directors adopted. We share them here with you.
The purpose of The International Dyslexia Association is to pursue and provide the most comprehensive range of information and services that address the full scope of dyslexia and related difficulties in learning to read and write…
In a way that creates hope, possibility and partnership…
So that every individual has the opportunity to lead a productive and fulfilling life, and society benefits from the resource that is liberated.
Literacy is one of the most important issues facing the Tri-Counties area of Southern California. To strengthen our communities and our economy, and to provide a better future for our families, we need to provide better opportunities today. The IDA is doing just that by providing classes, information, resources and services for addressing the problem of literacy in our own back yard.
TCB's Mission Statement
The So CA Tri-Counties Branch of the International Dyslexia Association endeavors to bring researchers and relevant literacy topics to the public and to share information regarding literacy, including dyslexia, via media, personal contact, and events focused on literacy. We envision building a community that facilitates literacy success through appropriate recognition, understanding, and strategy implementation. Our targets include educators, parents, individuals with dyslexia, and those sharing their lives. We believe that all individuals have the right to achieve their potential; individual learning abilities can be strengthened; and social, educational and cultural barriers to language acquisition and use must be removed.
