Description:

Request a Grant Writer

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 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:

  •  Prevention of reading failure in young children at-risk of dyslexia
  •  Remediation of reading disabilities/dyslexia in children, adolescents, and adults
  •  Helping English Learners master the pronunciation, reading, and writing of English

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.
