TeamQuest is an endurance training and fundraising program that will change your life and the lives of others. During your customized training program, you will make new friends and accomplish things you never thought possible. No matter what your fitness level, you will train for a rewarding and exciting endurance event at one of the great destination events worldwide while raising money to help children and adults with dyslexia and other reading difficulties.
IDA volunteers and staff work in partnership serving children and adults with dyslexia and all who struggle to read… because reading changes lives. The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) is an international organization that concerns itself with the complex issues of dyslexia. We believe that all individuals have the right to achieve their potential, that individual learning abilities can be strengthened and that social, educational and cultural barriers to language acquisition and use must be removed.
The IDA actively promotes effective teaching approaches and related clinical educational intervention strategies for individuals with dyslexia. We support and encourage interdisciplinary research. We facilitate the exploration of the causes and early identification of dyslexia and are committed to the responsible and wide dissemination of research based knowledge.
On the heels of Thanksgiving is Giving Tuesday, celebrated on Tuesday, November 28. It’s a day on which people across the country demonstrate their gratitude to organizations close to their hearts. I hope you’ll consider celebrating Giving Tuesday with a gift to the International Dyslexia Association in honor of the more than 10 million students in the US struggling with dyslexia. All gifts are tax-deductible and will also help me reach my goal of raising $2800 as part of IDA’s TeamQuest campaign. The funds raised through TeamQuest for IDA will help fund teacher training and parent information and support.

Until Everyone Can Read!
