In the highly demanding and overcrowded Israeli education system, it is easier than one might think to get lost and overlooked. The Faculty of Education’s Department of Learning Disabilities at the University of Haifa was established in recognition of the needs of a significant section of the school-going population who were overlooked, labeled incompetent and mistakenly found themselves in the academic no-man’s-land. It is now accepted that with the right kind of help, these individuals can fully contribute to society and can achieve greater personal fulfillment and a higher quality of life. With several senior faculty members recognized as world leaders in their fields, the Department of Learning Disabilities is one of the leading learning disability research centers in the world.
