IBIDA Conference

Sunday, October 14

At the Illinois Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (IBIDA) conference last week, I presented information about how students of all ages (from preschool through the senior years) can benefit from technology to access the Internet, textbooks, and any aspect of mainstream classrooms.
