UCSF | UCB Schwab Dyslexia & Cognitive Diversity Center

The new UCSF | UC Berkeley Schwab Center for Dyslexia and Cognitive Diversity draws on the deep and diverse strengths of both campuses – in child and adolescent psychiatry, psychology, neurology, neuroscience, education, and public health – to accelerate research, develop and implement better screening and assessment tools, test new interventions, and reduce the social stigma surrounding dyslexia and other learning disorders. It enlists members of academic and clinical entities at both UCSF and Berkeley and will operate clinics and research space on both sides of the Bay. At UCSF, the Center’s home will be in the Child, Teen, and Family Center, and the Department of Psychiatry Building, at 2130 Third Street, slated to open in the summer of 2021. At Berkeley, the Center will be based in the new Berkeley Way West building. Founding departments and programs at UCSF include the Departments of Neurology and of Psychiatry, the UCSF Dyslexia Center, the UCSF Child, Teen, and Family Center, Neuroscape, and the UCSF Graduate Neuroscience Program. At UC Berkeley, the founding departments and schools include the Department of Psychology, the Graduate School of Education, and the School of Public Health (adapted from Pete Farley, UCSF News, September 12, 2019).
