IDA-Oregon Student Empowerment Group

6th-12th grades

The IDA Oregon Branch Student Group originated back in 2013 when Shelbe Park envisioned a group of dyslexic students who, by working together as a team, could have an opportunity to advocate for themselves and for others, to teachers, parents and interested community groups. It quickly became clear that teachers and parents listened to these young adults’ stories and heard their pleas to be understood, far more succinctly than any lecture given by well-meaning adults!


In addition, they are an Award-Winning Student Panel that offers presentations on both their personal experience with dyslexia in the classroom and home and offer an interactive Assistive Technology 101 presentation that immerses participants in the tools that support students with dyslexia.
