We represent the Hawaii Branch of the international Dyslexia Association with information and video tapes available to view at home.

International Dyslexia Association:
The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals with dyslexia, their families and the communities that support them. IDA is the oldest learning disabilities organization in the nation -- founded in 1949 in memory of Dr. Samuel T. Orton, a distinguished neurologist. Throughout our rich history, our goal has been to provide the most comprehensive forum for parents, educators, and researchers to share their experiences, methods, and knowledge.

Do you have terrible handwriting? Canít draw? Hate to work with pencil and paper?
For people with handwriting challenges and anxiety with paper and pencil, The Learning Window is an uncomplicated tool for motor and visual/spatial problems. The Learning Window is a device used for teaching persons who have problems with handwriting, drawing, and working with pencil and paper. It is a transparent surface on which the learner traces and copies to form letters or pictures. The learner is guided through structured exercises by a teacher who may instruct from either side of the window. Through this process the individual can build a basis for comprehensive understanding of spatial relations which is the foundation for becoming a more accurate, efficient writer and drawer.
