I have a B.A. in Special Education and in English Language & Literature Haifa andan M.A in Learning Disability Evaluation and Remediation both from Haifa University. I am currently working at Ort Braude College as a students'counselor and lecturer of learning strategies in the Pre-Academic Studies Unit, focusing on improving teaching strategies for students with Learning Disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorders.During 2004-2015, I worked in several interdisciplinary diagnosis and treatment centers in Nahariyaas well asunder the Ministry of Educationat the Mati Support Center and at the Pisga Professional Development Centeras a guide andan expert in the diagnosis and remediation of learning disabilities in children, adolescents and adults.

Research topic:
I am currently a PHD student in the Department of Learning Disabilities. My current research, under the supervision of Prof. Tami Katzir and Prof. Emanuel Tirosh, focuses on investigatingthe role of Executive Functions and Self- Regulation in Reading Comprehension among college students with and without ADHD. The main purposes of my research are: to address differences between the research groups in Reading Comprehension achievements and Metacomprehension processes in relation to Executive Functions, to explore whether ADHD college students who have reading comprehension difficulties (poor comprehenders) tend to make overestimations with respect to their self-ratings of competence, and whether these are related to deficits in Executive Functions and whether it is a general trait or task driven.
