The Unit for Learning Disabilities
The Unit for Diagnosis and Support for Students with Learning Disabilities at the Hebrew University is part of the student support services operating at the Office of the Dean of Students. The unit counsels, assists and supports students with learning disabilities or with attention and/or hyperactivity disorders to be successful in the course of their academic careers.
The unit offers an accepting, supporting and understanding environment for students with learning disabilities and believes that by getting support and professional guidance, students with learning disabilities can improve their academic skills, become independent learners, capable of fully realizing their potential.
