These are challenging times. But we cannot allow more children to fall behind their peers. Our struggling readers need us now more than ever.

We need you to stand with us!

The IDA community understands all too well the burden this crisis has placed on families and teachers with its disruption of income, quarantine, and other challenges. That’s why we have established a national relief fund to help those hit the hardest by providing the following:

  1. Computers, laptops, or tablets (for remote learning) for those who can’t afford them,

  2. Educational software and other required learning tools,

  3. Tutorial stipends for students who need one-on-one learning assistance, and

  4. Family advocate stipends for those in need of special education advocacy services.


Now is the time to unite and serve the many families feeling hopeless. They only want the best for their children. Let’s not turn any of them away.

Won’t you please contribute $1.00 (or more) to help them? Together, we are stronger than COVID-19! 

And, because we know how much you care, we’ll keep our community of stakeholders posted on our progress and impact. Thank you!
