Welcome to ONBIDA!

The Ontario Branch of the International Dyslexia Association is committed to providing information, support and advocacy for individuals with dyslexia, their families and educators  in Ontario.   We hope the many resources on this website are helpful in giving you a better understanding of dyslexia, the importance of early identification and effective intervention and other ways to support a child or adult with dyslexia.
