According to the IDA’s (International Dyslexia Association) research, dyslexia affects one in five people. This means that in a classroom of 25, as many as 5 students could be struggling with dyslexia.

DAN is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization and operates with the mission to improve the lives of children and individuals with dyslexia, and related learning disabilities, through high-quality, professional development for teachers, the public and the families of the students it supports.

DAN promotes research-based approaches that teach reading the way children and adults actually learn. Working as partners with schools, teachers, parents and other experts, DAN strives to eliminate educational inequities and create excellent learning opportunities for all students.

It is critical for us to keep this program up and running for the families in our area. Our goal is to build a scholarship fund to help families afford these services.

Help us ensure these vital services continue to be available in our area!
