A2IDEAS has established DAC-MI, an informal advocacy coalition with a focus on meeting the needs of our community for students with dyslexia. A2IDEAS will serve as the lead agency and facilitator for coalition activities.
“For those of us for whom words sing, sentences paint pictures, and paragraphs create panoramic views of the world, the inability to identify and process words with ease would be crippling.”
~ Judge Sonya Sotomayor ~
Bartlett v. New York State Bd. of Law Examiners, 970 F.Supp. 1094
