Welcome to the Southwest Branch of The International Dyslexia Association (SWIDA),
Who are we? In brief, SWIDA is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting literacy through research, education and advocacy in New Mexico and the El Paso area.
Founded in 1987, the Southwest Branch joins over 42 national branches of IDA and numerous international affiliations in striving 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. In addition, the Southwest Branch provides regional workshops, “Experience Dyslexia” simulations to train teachers and increase public awareness of dyslexia, and student events.
Currently, we are planning not only the 2020 annual conference, but a Parent/Student Conference for October 19 to be held in Albuquerque, and a fund-raising event in Taos on October 18. More information will be forthcoming. Keep checking our website under Events.
