Welcome to the Miles Dyslexia Centre

The Miles Dyslexia Centre is a self-financing, nationally and internationally renowned, specialised Centre within the School of Psychology at Bangor University, North Wales.

The Centre was the first unit of its kind to be established combining research into dyslexia with clinical work, based on groundwork by the acclaimed Professor Tim Miles OBE who began work on Dyslexia in the 1960s.

The Miles Dyslexia Centre today is active in all fields of dyslexia work: teaching primary and secondary school children; screening and assessment for dyslexia; supporting students with dyslexia within the University; training of teachers for work with dyslexic children; providing information on dyslexia to the general public; and research. Members of the MDC can provide information and advice, both to the general public and in the form of talks and posters to dyslexia associations and other bodies.

The MDC was set up by Professor Emeritus T R Miles OBE when he was Head of the School of Psychology, and it has grown steadily ever since with the number of children, adults and students that it helps increasing every year.
