The UCSF Dyslexia Center aims to eliminate the debilitating effects of developmental dyslexia while supporting the relative strengths of each individual. We develop best practice protocols to assess and diagnose children with dyslexia through a multimodal cognitive and neuroimaging program. We work closely with schools and educators to develop early interventions and educational strategies to help children with dyslexia thrive. 

As a part of UCSF’s Dyslexia Center, the Screening and Early Intervention Pilot Program aims to better identify students at a high risk of dyslexia by developing a digital application for use in California’s public elementary schools. Ultimately, the screener will become part of a larger integrated platform with the ability to provide curriculum support, train educators on potential educational interventions, and collect and organize data for reporting on outcomes.
