I study the literacy, linguistic and cognitive abilities of adults and children with learning disabilities in general, and dyslexia in particular. My research aims to inform intervention programs to better the academic achievements of both Hebrew and Arabic language learners. I have developed diagnosis batteries and implemented various intervention programs for learning disabled throughout the country. I also train interns preparing to be learning disabilities professionals.
