Weaving of Intricacy
“I created this artwork to exemplify the complexities of dyslexia and to further explore challenges associated with it. Much like the beauty within a carefully knitted work, dyslexia encompasses many intricacies found in its careful examination. Living with dyslexia causes you to work through new pathways and weave a unique journey of reaching your goals. Although the footsteps through may seem fickle and you may be at times swept off your feet, the end result is a mosaic of perseverance.”

IDA Recognized as an “Outstanding Organization” by the Child Mind Institute and crowd-sourced Votes
The Child Mind Institute is a national, independent nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Their annual Change Maker Awards celebrate individuals and organizations who raise awareness and dispel stigma, help children and families directly, or work to transform the way we understand and treat mental health and learning differences.
This spring, the Child Mind Institute nominated the International Dyslexia Association for their Outstanding Organization award that is won by crowd-sourced voting. “This award recognizes an organization for their uncompromising support of young people who struggle with mental health and learning disorders and the professionals who work to help them is results-oriented and have proven success.”
IDA wishes to thank all of its members, volunteers, staff and the entire dyslexia community for contributing to 70 years of changing lives and for taking the time to vote for a cause that has an impact on every person struggling to do something most of us take for granted.
