Learning Disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder

Evaluation and support for students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder

The unit for evaluation and support for students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder provides services of evaluation, consultancy, assistance and support for students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder during their academic studies.
The unit offers a supportive and welcoming environment for students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder and acts out of faith that with support, training and professional guidance, students with ADD and learning disabilities can become independent and successful learners, and these difficulties do not constitute barriers to success for them.
The unit provides a wide range of services, such as: Evaluation of learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder (including ADD clinic and provision of medications in case of need), recommendations of adjustments using specialized tests and examination of their efficacy, consulting, training, and support in various ways.
In addition, the unit maintains contact with University researchers and invites students to participate in studies in the areas of education, psychology and medicine, and offers them the option to use different tools that are under study, such as computer software intended to improve attention and concentration and other therapeutic programs.
