The IDA supports efforts to identify dyslexic individuals at an early age and provide them with appropriate instruction. The IDA believes that multisensory teaching and learning is the best approach currently available for those affected by dyslexia. The IDA does not endorse and specific program, speaker or instructional materials noting that there are a number that present the critical components of instruction as defined by the Task Force on Multisensory Teaching which works under the guidance of the IDA’s Teacher Education Issues Committee.
Importantly, IDA cautions parents who are looking for instructors, clinicians, schools, and programs to be very thorough in their review of programs and services that claim to treat dyslexia or “cure” dyslexia. In this era of internet advertising, claims are frequently made about therapies and treatment programs that have little or no scientific merit. Claims about the effectiveness of some widely advertised programs and/or their components may be unsubstantiated by objective, independent research, and the practitioners of those programs and methods may not have met customary standards for training in the field.
