Welcome to the Oregon Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (ORBIDA)!

ORBIDA was founded in 1975 by Dorothy Blosser Whitehead and is one of 42 state branches and 22 global partners of the IDA. Our mission is to actively promote effective teaching approaches and intervention strategies for children and adults with dyslexia and related reading disorders.

In concert with several state and community partners in Oregon and Southwest Washington, we encourage and support interdisciplinary research into the causes and treatments for dyslexia and advocate for individuals, families and professionals alike.

We would love to assist you in finding the information you need to help with your personal or professional dyslexia related inquiries.

Our website is currently being updated. Should you not see what you are looking for on these pages and you have a particular question, you need further information, or if you would like to connect with us and become an active volunteer, please contact us at Our Information and Referral Specialist will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you!
