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. 

The Southwest Branch hosts an annual conference every February and a student/parent event every October.  Upon request, SWIDA can also provide regional workshops, such as the popular “Experience Dyslexia” simulations that increase public awareness of dyslexia.
