As a graduate student of education, I'm eager to learn tools for the classroom and to be ready for the changes taking place within education. Everyone Reading gave me the valuable opportunity to volunteer at their conference and attend sessions. I learned so much to take with me into the classroom!

Everyone Reading is truly a gem in Manhattan. It's the go to place for children with dyslexia and other learning disabilites as well as a great resource for parents looking for help to navigate the system . My son has benefitted greatly from tutoring and never complained about going. I would highly recommend Everyone Reading to anyone with learning disablities.

I have gone to many of their workshops and professional development trainings. They are always well organized, comprehensive and extremely useful. They offer a lot of support to families and children with dyslexia and other language-based learning disorders. I always recommend them to families for services and support.

I have been involved with Everyone Reading (formerly NYB-IDA) since I was in graduate school in the early 1990s. Everyone Reading is a terrific resource for the community--whether you are an educator seeking specialized training to work with dyslexic children, a parent who needs help navigating the evaluations and the school system, or a child with learning disabilities. I've attended the annual conference in NYC year after year, participating in workshops, meeting with other professionals and finding out about new materials to use with my students. Everyone Reading also provides low cost tutoring during the summer--training teachers in research based approaches to teaching reading, while simultaneously giving children with dyslexia intensive instruction. Their workshops for parents are informative and offered as a community service. Everyone Reading is truly a wonderful organization committed to helping children, parents and teachers.

This is truly a valuable organization. As a special educator for over 30 years in the NYC Public Schools, I have come across many students who have the difficulties associated with dyslexia in the areas of reading , math and writing yet this is not a classification that we can use on an IEP. The Department of Education does not even offer any training to support teachers in this area. I have attended the past 5 conferences as well as professional development opportunities at Everyone Reading and as a direct result of these experiences, I have been able to help my students become readers!

I have been a member of this organization since the early 1980's when it was the Orton Society. The conferences, publications, and professional development have guided me in my career as a special education teacher. Everyone Reading is devoted to those with learning disabilities, their families, and the professionals who treat them.

i am a NYC public school teacher. I found Everyone Reading through PD opportunities with their annual conference. I have been to this conference now for two years and I cannot speak highly enough about it. The workshops offer tangible advice for ways to support the students in my classroom! I have also taken some of their summer/weekend PDs at their site... also super helpful. This organization is a great resource for supporting students with Learning Disabilities, their teachers, and their families~

I became acquainted with Everyone Reading during the course of an internship I was doing in association with my course work with York College City University of New York. As the intern assigned to the account of Everyone Reading, I learned of the phenomenal work the nonprofit does in the area of literacy, in particular with children and adults affected by dyslexia. I was truly marveled by the level of experience and the quality of the expertise that every staff member demonstrates in their interaction with their clients, educators and collaborative organizations. Everyone Reading is a caring compassionate and highly professional nonprofit.
