Welcome to the Southwest Branch of The International Dyslexia Association (SWIDA), and Happy Summer!  

As teachers, parents, and students enjoy a much needed break, members of the SWIDA Board of Directors are actually finalizing the slate for the 2019 annual conference.  Included among the speakers will be Dr. Elsa Cardenas-Hagan, a wonderful presenter we’ve been wanting to host for quite some time.  (Check our website this fall for more information, and don’t forget to register early.  We had to close registration early this year due to venue limitations!)

Now if you are new to this website, you may want to know who we are.   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.
