What We Do

The Nebraska Dyslexia Association helps children and adults with dyslexia become knowledgeable about their dyslexia and the interventions and accommodations that will ensure their success in school and the workplace. Dyslexia can cause lifelong struggles with reading, writing, spelling or comprehension. But it doesn't have to be that way. We provide referrals to qualified local tutors. We educate public and private school teachers about how to recognize dyslexia in their students and employ techniques and interventions that help students learn to read. NDA provides many services for individuals with dyslexia, including:

Free consultations with parents and teachers about individual student learning difficulties

Classes, workshops, and conferences for parents and teachers to learn how to help children with dyslexia

Awareness events and information sessions for the general public

Advocacy for families who need support and advice, speakers for groups of educators and medical professionals

Interesting Info

We support families, students, and education professionals across the state of Nebraska.
According to the International Dyslexia Association, it is estimated that as many as 15–20% of the population have some of the symptoms of dyslexia.
