UCSF Dyslexia Center

The mission of UCSF Dyslexia Center is to address and remove the debilitating effects of dyslexia while preserving, and even enhancing, the strengths of each individual.

At the UCSF Dyslexia Center we take a multidisciplinary approach based on latest scientific discoveries in neuroscience to characterize the strengths and weaknesses associated with dyslexia.

UCSF is perfectly poised to lead the way in dyslexia research due to its impeccable infrastructure, technology, intellectual resources, and track record of success.

Our Flagship Phenotype Project
This project aims to assess and improve each dyslexic individual’s difficulties in written language by designing personalized, brain-based strategies rooted in their strengths.

Dyslexia Risk i-Screener
In collaboration with UCSF brainLENS, Stanford, Berkeley, and other partners, we are starting to develop a gamified app that screens for dyslexia in preschool children.  This app will also allow us to identify the subtype of reading disorder using what we are learning from the phenotype.
