Welcome to the Southwest Branch of The International Dyslexia Association (SWIDA). We are in countdown mode now as we approach our 31st annual conference, set for February 23-24 at Sandia Resort.  

News Flash – February 2: Registration is now closed. We have reached venue capacity!

Albuquerque Mayor Timothy Keller, who has been very open about his own dyslexia, has accepted our invitation to attend this year’s conference!

Needless to say, we hope you can get to know us by attending our 2018 conference, but for those who cannot, here’s a brief background on who we are: SWIDA is 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 branches of IDA 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.
