Initial Teaching Alphabet Foundation
Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit educational organizations for educational programming that will improve literacy skills among children and older students. Funding is intended to support organizations that wish to employ reading strategies of the Foundation, namely, the initial teaching alphabet (ITA). The purpose of the program is to assist English learners as well as those with, or at risk of, reading disabilities and dyslexia.
The Initial Teaching Alphabet Foundation provides grants to non-profit organizations committed to advancing education through the use of the ITA phonemic alphabet. Their goal is to provide monetary and technical support to schools and agencies that are dedicated to:
Background: ITA is a phonemic alphabet that contains a symbol for each of the 44 speech sounds of English. English is purported to be the most difficult language to learn and has the highest percentage of dyslexics in the world because sounds and letters often don’t match. People with reading disabilities/dyslexia and young children at-risk of reading failure have a deficit in phonological skills that typically develop during the preschool to early elementary years. ITA can be used to correct underlying phonological deficits so that struggling readers can become proficient readers.
