Who We Are

Reading is a critical link to success. Everyone Reading advances the lives of children and adults with dyslexia and related learning disabilities by providing the resources they need to learn to become successful readers, writers and spellers.

Everyone Reading, Inc., formerly the New York Branch of the International Dyslexia Association, was first created 40 years ago by a group of concerned parents and educators; Since then the organization has expanded its programming and administrative capacity, becoming recognized both as a provider of high-quality professional development services and as the go-to resource for parents, adults and professionals seeking guidance and support in the area of dyslexia and related learning disabilities.

Everyone Reading strives to lessen, and eventually eliminate, the stigma associated with dyslexia and LD. We also work to demonstrate to the community that dyslexia and LD can affect anyone–including people with average and above-average intelligence.
